US District Court NH: NOTICE : CIVIL FILING FEE AND APPEAL FEE INCREASE EFFECTIVE APRIL 9, 2006

On February 8, 2006, the President signed into law the Deficit Reduction Act of 2005, which included provisions increasing the civil filing fee from $250 to $350 and the fee for filing a notice of appeal from $255 to $455.  This change in the civil filing fee and the notice of appeal fee will become effective April 9, 2006, 60 days from the date the bill was signed into law by the President.

           

Please note that the filing fee for a miscellaneous case and for a writ of habeas corpus will remain $39 and $5, respectively.  Additionally, while the total fees for filing a Chapter 7 and 13 bankruptcy case have increased to $299 and $274, respectively, the fees for filing an adversary proceeding or an appeal to the district court or bankruptcy appellate panel are not impacted by this legislation at this time.
