Do you meant he cost to file the motion or the total costs, including attorney's fees?  Each county has their own filing fees.  Generally the county has a cost for filing per petition or motion (for example in LA it is $120 per motion) but sometimes you can file more than one arrest per petition.  Attorney's fees are a different story.  That can vary widely for county to county as well.  I have seen quotes for one expungement of between $800 to $1000 for court costs and attorney's fees.  Shop around.  Good luck.
