A filing fee shall be charged to bring action before the Ponca Tribe of Nebraska Tribal Court. The Judge has the ability to waive the filing fee, based upon the Petitioner’s income and expenses. These fees are as follows:
Filing fees to the Ponca Appellate Court may be waived following the same process for the Tribal Court, which is based upon an affidavit and the Petitioner’s income and expenses.
If you are unable to pay the required fees and still want the Court to hear your case, you are required to complete a signed Motion to Proceed In Forma Pauperis that states your income and expenses. The Court will then decide whether or not they will hear the case without the filing fee. For more information, please see the associated Court Report on Fees.
