Miscellaneous Fee Schedule Change Effective December 1, 2023

Wednesday, November 29, 2023

At its March 2023 and September 2023 sessions, 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, 2023.

Notably, the $52 administrative fee portion for filing a civil action, suit or proceeding in a district court, will increase to $55, thereby increasing the total filing fee for a new civil action from $402.00 to $405.00. 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.

The last time miscellaneous fees were adjusted for inflation was in December 2020.
