Federal Court Filing Fee to Increase

The civil filing fee for United States District Courts will increase to $350 on April 9, 2006. The filing fee for the federal Courts of Appeals will rise to $450 at the same time. Social Security disability claims are a significant part of the federal District Courts' workload. This increase in the filing fee will undoubtedly increase even further the percentage of Social Security claimants who proceed in forma pauperis -- that is, in the form of a pauper to avoid the filing fee -- in the federal courts.
