Question and Answer

I don't practice law in New Jersey and I don't want to pay the fees. I want to be placed in inactive status on the attorney registration. What are my options?

There is no "inactive status" in New Jersey. Please review the exemptions from payment. If you do not meet the standards to claim a payment exemption, and do not pay the required fees, you will be declared ineligible and not in good standing in New Jersey.

Alternatively, you may formally resign from the New Jersey Bar as noted in the answer to "How do I resign without prejudice from the New Jersey Bar?" on this page.
