In Florida there is an application for indigent status and if approved it waves filing fee, whether in Family , Criminal, traffic or Civil. Is there a form like this in Georgia courts? if so what is it called? where is it found?

  1. If you are talking about criminal cases, you can fill out an application for a public defender; you fill out the application at the public defender's office. If you are talking about civil matters, you can fill out a pauper's affidavit asking to waive the filing fee and service fee; each court may have a standard pauper's affidavit form, but in the alternative, you can draft your own.

  2. I agree with the previous attorney's answer. The filing fees for appeal cases will be waived if you can prove you are indigent, and you can also apply for a court appointed attorney if you are indigent.

  3. Contact the PD for a financial statement declaration.
