My financial situation is {explanation}. Is there a way to make payments? Could the {jury fee/court reporting/etc.} portion of the fee be waived or forgiven due to {factor}? I could possibly manage {amount} per month.

I am literally in tears over these unexpected court fees. Please let me know what options I may have.
