  • If I file new cases, proceedings or pleadings which require a filing fee,how is fee ? Hawaii

    Filing fees are paid by credit card. Participating attorneys should prepare for CM/ECF by establishing a credit card account for use in paying such fees and by setting up internal office policies concerning staff who will have access to the credit card numbers and use of the account.
    Filing fees are due when a case or document requiring a fee is due. During the docketing routine the filing party will be asked whether the fee should be paid. If the user answers yes, the user will be prompted to enter a credit card number and amount to be charged to that account. It is possible to pay fees for several cases or matters at the end of a session and not enter payment information separately for each case or document.

    In normal cases, the court will expect the user to pay all fees when filing a case or pleading. If this is not done, the court may dismiss the case or strike the pleadings, and the court may also sanction the attorney. In rare cases an attorney will represent a client who wishes to pay the filing fee in installments. This is rare because an application to pay in installments can only be granted by the court if the debtor has paid nothing to his/her attorney for services. However, some attorneys represent clients pro bono and take no advance fees and in such instances an installment application would be possible and appropriate. Attorneys filing such cases can file an appropriate application to pay in installments and can pay the initial installment when filing the case.
