  • Court Fee Waiver Form

    What is this for? The “Petition for Proceeding in Civil Case Without Payment of Fees or Costs” is a form that allows a person who has little income (or who has very high expenses) to ask a Virginia court to “waive” (which means “not require”) the fees associated with civil court actions. The form may also be informally called a “fee waiver request form” or an “in forma pauperis form” (in forma pauperis is a Latin legal term meaning to proceed as a poor person). NOTE: You cannot file this document online. The court must receive a signed paper copy. Read More
