When you e-file a Notice of Appeal, the e-filing system does not assess the appeal fees.
To submit the fees, the party (or someone on his/her behalf) will need to go to the Stanley Mosk Courthouse Room 111 (Civil Appeals) so the fees may be forwarded directly to DCA (District Court of Appeal).
Once the appeals office has processed the Notice, and forwarded it to the DCA, they will no longer accept the fee in Civil Appeals. The party will be directed to pay DCA directly at that time.
As a rule of thumb, if the $775.00 fee is submitted within 24-48 hours, the appeals unit will accept the $775.00 fee in Civil Appeals.
