(a) No fee or expense shall be charged for any proceedings in the settlement of the estate of any member of the armed forces who died while in service in time of war as defined in section 27-103.
(c) If a petitioner or applicant to a Probate Court claims that unless his or her obligation to pay the fees and the necessary expenses of the action, including the expense of service of process, is waived, such petitioner or applicant will be deprived by reason of his or her indigency of his or her right to bring a petition or application to such court or that he or she is otherwise unable to pay the fees and necessary expenses of the action, he or she may file with the clerk of such Probate Court an application for waiver of payment of such fees and necessary expenses. Such application shall be signed under penalty of false statement, shall state the applicant's financial circumstances, and shall identify the fees and expenses sought to be waived and the approximate amount of each. If the court finds that the applicant is unable to pay such fees and expenses, it shall order such fees and expenses waived. If such expenses include the expense of service of process, the court, in its order, shall indicate the method of service authorized and the expense of such service shall be paid from funds appropriated to the Judicial Department, except that, if funds have not been included in the budget of the Judicial Department for such expenses, such expenses shall be paid from the Probate Court Administration Fund.
(d) The court may, in its discretion, postpone payment of any entry fee or other fee or expense due under sections 45a-107 to 45a-112, inclusive, and enter any matter if it appears to the court that to require such entry fee or other fee or expense to accompany submission of the matter would cause undue delay or hardship, but in such case the applicant, petitioner or moving party shall be liable for the entry fee and all other fees and expenses upon receipt of an invoice therefor from the court.
