     If a filing is made on behalf of a litigant who has qualified as a pauper, then a copy of the order designating such litigant as a pauper should be a part of the filing and indexed as such on writs, so that the court will be aware that no filing fee is due at the time of the filing. However, attorneys representing pauper clients who request extensions of time on briefing are required to pay the $50.00 extension fee. 

     Filing fees are not required when the litigant filing the appeal, writ, etc. is a public body or public official.

NOTE: There is no filing fee for briefs, etc. when an appeal number has been assigned. The only exception being Application for Rehearing and Answers to Appeal.
