One of the reasons attorneys have their filings rejected is due to not adding the Court Reporter Fee.

The Court Reporter Fee of $30 is not automatically associated with any document type. This means when filing any document that requires a court reporter fee, you will need to manually add it to your filing.

If you fail to add the fee when the court requires it, the court’s filing clerk will reject your filing until it is added.

To add the Court Reporter Fee, look for the Security & Optional Services section in your filing.

Select the applicable Security option, and then on the Optional Services dropdown, find the Court Reporting Services less than 1 hour $30.00 option. You can also select a quantity too if needed, and then continue on with your filing.

This option is an easy one to miss, so double check your filing before submitting it to the court. It will save you valuable time fixing a rejected filing.
