What does probable court costs mean? ?
Probable court cost, $211 something. On a judgement for a garnishment that didn’t end up going through. Do I still owe the ‘probable court cost’ even though my wages didn’t end up being garnished ?

Probable means that it is an estimate. Typically, the party filing a case has to pre-pay those costs. They include things like the expense of serving the pleadings (e.g. on the employer for a garnishment) which could be higher or lower. Other costs are set fees which will definitely be part of the costs.
After the case is resolved, the court will assess costs -- usually against the losing party. Costs are a judgment which can be collected by various means including a garnishment. If the final costs come in less than the estimated cost, the excess will be refunded to the party that made the cost deposited.

This is a guess at how much your action cost the taxpayers.
Yes, you need to pay it, unless you prefer sitting in a jail cell.
