United States Courts
Western district of Missouri
At its September 2012 meeting, the Judicial Conference approved a new $50 general administrative fee for civil cases filed in District Court. This fee does not apply to persons granted in forma pauperis status under 28 U.S.C. 1915, nor does it affect the District Court miscellaneous fee schedule. Effective May 1, 2013, this new administrative fee will raise the total fee required to file a new civil case in District Court from $350 to $400.
