Is it acceptable, or even legal for the government to "change terms" once a process is already in play? For instance, let's say I was charged $30 for "service of process", and then later get a bill for $10 from the court because the process server managed to later re-negotiated a higher fee for themselves?
note: not the real situation, but illustrates the issue fairly satifactorily

If you have a contract with someone and you pay what was agreed upon then they cannot unilaterally charge more later one.
