There is a box to check on the "Notice of Appeal" form that says under the "certification of status" part that says: "A civil, infraction or parking appeal for which an In Forma Pauperis Petition has been granted and filing fee is waived" so does that mean the filing fee is waived for the appeal? That seems to be what it implies or I don't see what the point of that as an option to check is. It is like 300 dollars for the appeal & the initial filing fee would have been even less than that, so I am assuming it does but wanted to be sure - yes I know the obvious answer would be "call them & ask" but it is too late to call them today & was hoping to find out before tomorrow morning (when I see my family to ask if they could help with the money, if I need to) - thanks in advance for any help
Different court, different fee. You will need to make your motion again. I would suggest you consult with a lawyer. If I understand this, you are appealing a traffic ticket or parking ticket? What is the fine? You do understand that you will be paying out a lot of money for transcripts, copies, etc., even assuming you know what you are doing? You really should speak with a lawyer. An appeal is not like going back into court and speaking with the judge. You will need to identify legal errors, brief those errors, file relevant portions of the records, and be prepared to make legal arguments. What are your appeal issues? You really need to consult with an attorney.
