The Wyoming CSP is judicial in nature, meaning most enforcement actions are taken pursuant to a court order.  Upon request, a Wyoming judge may order a party to pay certain fees/costs related to the civil action.


Although Wyoming statutes allow for the Wyoming CSP to recover attorney fees, filing fees, and other reasonable expenses including genetic testing, service of process, and costs, the CSP shall not request reimbursement of any costs associated with an action.  This includes cases in which an action is filed on behalf of another state (e.g. Responding cases).
