Do Not Attach Your Fee Payment to a Filing

If you pay a fee electronically, you will need to upload a one-page document to the e-filing system.  Please do not upload and attach your fee payment to a filing, like a motion or brief.  Doing so will create a risk that the filing will be overlooked and not properly docketed.  You may either upload the court's filing fee order, if applicable, or a one-page letter that states you are paying the fee electronically.
