• What would be the fee for filing nullity of marriage

Thanks for the answers.  I would like to know what would be the fee for filling nullity.
And also should we file the case in any specific district court. Myself and the person i got married are from the same district. But we are now in another district. I also have a problem in filling case in my own district as my father is little influenced there.
