ACH Payment Processing for Filing Fees

Wednesday, February 17, 2016

 
Effective February 17, 2016 at 7:00 am, the court will accept ACH (Automated Clearing House) payments for filing fees.  This option will be available to attorneys and limited filers with active CM/ECF logins.
 
Pursuant to Judicial Conference policy, a $53 fee will be imposed on any ACH remittance returned for non-payment.  In addition, future privileges to use ACH or to remit any other payments through the pay.gov application may be revoked should any remittance be returned for non-payment.
 
The screen shot below provides further details on how ACH information will be collected.  The court is happy to offer this feature.  Please contact the Financial Section via email financial@ganb.uscourts.gov with any questions.
 
Please note that ACH Payments can be returned by a bank if the ACH debit block is in place.  The Court's ID - 0000861901 - should be provided to the bank to allow for processing of these payments.
