Counsel may electronically submit case-initiating documents for petitions for review, petitions for enforcement of an agency order, petitions for writ of mandamus, petitions for permission to appeal and motions for authorization to file a successive §2254 or §2255 petition. Filers remain responsible for service of case-initiating documents.
If a fee is required, it may be paid by credit card when the documents are submitted. A filing fee is not required for Motions for Authorization to File Successive Applications Under 28 U.S.C. §2244, Petition for Permission to Appeal under FRAP Rule 5 or for a case in which the appellant will be filing an Application to Proceed In Forma Pauperis. Use the "Submit New Case Without Fee" option to submit these cases to the court.
If your submission is an emergency matter or you are seeking immediate relief, please contact the clerk's office at 804-916-2700 to ensure your matter is handled expeditiously.
