Amends the Clerk of Courts Act. Provides that each circuit court clerk shall charge and collect a fee on all new cases (rather than all matters) filed in probate cases in the amount of $100. Removes language providing that no fee shall be imposed against an indigent person who is, in the discretion of the court, unable to proceed in an action without payment of fees, costs, and charges and whose payment of those fees, costs, and charges would result in substantial hardship to the person or his or her family. Provides that no fee shall be imposed against an indigent person who is otherwise unable to pay the fee because it would cause substantial hardship to the person. Makes conforming changes.
