Annual Renewal Fee

Pursuant to Administrative Order 18-AO-1-P dated July 1st, 2018, the Court no longer requires attorneys to complete CLE hours in the area of federal practice to be admitted and remain in good standing.

Each attorney is required to pay an annual fee of $25.00 to remain in good standing.  The annual fee is due by March 1st of each year.  See Local Rule 83(c)(4).

Each attorney must pay the fee using their own CM/ECF login and password.  Firms or a group of attorneys cannot submit one payment.

Questions regarding your Annual Renewal Fee or to change your status to "Inactive" can be sent to or you can call the Clerk's Office at 515-323-2842.
