In California, there is only 1 fee to file an action. It does not matter how many plaintiffs there are. Each Defendant, however, must pay a filing fee to file a response to the complaint, whether the Defendants join together in the response or file separately.

Not usually. If all plaintiffs file together, while privately you might split the fees among yourselves, the court only requires the single filing fee. If you begin filing cross-claims or start adding parties, you may incur additional filing fees, but for simply starting suit requires only one filing fee.

If there is only one complaint, there is only one filing fee. If you all file different complaints, then you will have to pay separate fees. It sounds like you may be attempting to file pro se (without an attorney). Be very careful doing this in Superior Court. The rules can be complicated and can harm your case if you are not prepared.
