For filers who qualify for a waiver of fees on a case, they will need to create a Waiver Payment Account to use as the payment method. Once you do that, anytime you file on that case, you can select it to indicate to the court the filing fees should be waived.

Note: The Los Angeles Superior Court does NOT allow for a waiver payment account be used for filings on Civil cases. Please see section below for more information.
