Effective August 1, 2014, the Sixth Circuit accepts electronic fee payments through Pay.gov, the federal government's secure online payment system. A filer accesses Pay.gov through the CM/ECF document-filing system.
The Court continues to accept payments by check or cash. Users must register for a Sixth Circuit CM/ECF account to pay fees by credit/debit or ACH payment. Once logged into CM/ECF, the system utilizes Pay.gov, the federal government's secure online payment system, for submission of payments.
