What is my witness fee if I’m subpoenaed under the Georgia Civil Practice Act from outside the county?

Under O.C.G.A. § 24-10-24, if you receive a subpoena to testify in court in Georgia, whether for a workers’ compensation hearing or other civil action here, your witness fee is $25 per day and $.20 per mile (roundtrip) for traveling expenses.  This is required for service to be valid if your residence is outside the county where the proceeding is to take place.
