Is there a form to follow when filing a request to proceed in forma paupis when filing an appeal to the 5th circuit
Yes. You must make a motion pursuant to Federal Rules of Appellate Procedure 24, which you can find here:
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:
This form requires that you list the amounts of your sources of income and your expenses.
I hope this helps.
