Is there a form to follow when filing a request to proceed in forma paupis when filing an appeal to the 5th circuit
Hello PLCUSTOMER,
Yes. You must make a motion pursuant to Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure 24, which you can find here:
http://www.law.cornell.edu/rules/frap/rule_24
And in making this motion you must include an "Affidavit Accompanying Motion for Permission to Appeal In Forma Pauperis." You can find this form which is listed as Appellate Form 4 here:
http://www.uscourts.gov/RulesAndPolicies/FederalRulemaking/RulesAndForms/AppellateRulesForms.aspx
This form requires that you list the amounts of your sources of income and your expenses.
I hope this helps.
Thomas
