Frequently Asked Questions

  • CMECF Why would an attorney of record on a social security or an immigration case not have access?

    When outside users file in a restricted case or in a case that has entries restricted, the functionality that would automatically add the party/attorney to the case participants restricted access group, will no longer be triggered automatically creating a delay in access to restricted materials.

    The delay will enable court staff to review the request. If immediate access is required please contact the appropriate Clerks Office Docketing Department during business hours. Brooklyn 718-613-2610 or Central Islip 613-712-6010.

     

  • Do I have to submit a memorandum in support of my voucher?

    If your voucher exceeds the statutory maximum for the type of representation, you must submit a CJA 26 Supplemental Information Statement explaining why the claim is an excess claim. If you do not submit this form, your voucher will be returned to you unprocessed. If the claim is under the statutory limits, there is no need for a CJA 26.

  • Do I have to supply my social security number?

    Yes. To process a voucher for payment, the Administrative Office must have your social security number (16B). The taxpayer or law firm ID number (16C) is required only if you checked "Yes" in 16A. All checks will be made out to you, not the law firm. If your firm is incorporated (16A), a 1099 will be provided to the firm, not to you. 

  • Do I include claims for transcripts on my CJA 20 voucher?

    No. All claims for transcripts must be submitted on a CJA 24 voucher.

  • Do I need to file my motion to appear pro hac vice for each attorney or can I file it once?
