I need to have a filing fee removed that I do not owe. Who do I contact?

Under certain circumstances the ECF system may charge an attorney for a filing fee that is not applicable or has been waived by the court.  Because of the individual nature of these situations, CM/ECF automatically charges the fee and users must notify the court when a charge should be reveresed.  Upon completion of the ECF event, select Continue Filing from the credit card pop-up screen.  Do not pay the outstanding fees.  Upon receipt of your e-mail, the court will review the filing and notify you by return e-mail if the fee has been removed, or if the fee must be paid.  If you have been charged a fee which you believe is not due, please send an e-mail to:, as soon as possible.  Your access to CM/ECF will be restricted until the charge is reversed.  Please provide the following information in your email:  attorney filer name, case number, event (e.g., Motion for Relief from Stay) dollar amount, date of filing, and reason the fee is not required.
