What happens after you order a transcript:
A transcript of your court hearing or trial must be submitted with your appeal so that the appellate judges can review everything that was said in court. If you do not order or submit a transcript, your case might be dismissed.
The person filing the appeal must request and pay for the transcript.
The certified transcription agency or court reporter handling your request will contact you about a deposit. Deposits for the request can be paid by mailing in a check or credit card over the phone, depending on what is accepted by the transcription agency or court reporter.
Transcript costs are based on the length of the hearing(s) that are being transcribed. You can view Estimated Cost of Transcripts for further information.
Fee waivers do not apply to transcript fees for appeals. Another motion and Certification in Support of a Fee Waiver is required to attempt to have the transcript fees waived. Transcripts at public expense are typically granted only in criminal cases where the defendant qualifies for that relief. Do not expect to receive transcripts at public expense for a civil or family appeal.
You may request an agency as long as the transcript has not already been ordered and produced by another agency.
