Miscellaneous Fee Schedule Change Effective December 1, 2020

Tuesday, December 1, 2020

At its March 2020 session, on the recommendation of the Committee on Court Administration and Case Management, the Judicial Conference approved inflationary adjustments to fees on the district court miscellaneous fee schedule. These changes are effective December 1, 2020.

Notably, the $50 administrative fee portion for filing a civil action, suit or proceeding in a district court, will increase to $52, thereby increasing the total filing fee for a new civil action from $400.00 to $402.00. The administrative fee does not apply to applications for a writ of habeas corpus or to persons granted in forma pauperis status under 28 U.S.C. § 1915.
