CJA eVoucher Go Live!
Posted: 7/8/2015

eVoucher is going live on September 8, 2015! What does this mean for attorneys? It means easier voucher submission, faster processing time, and convenient voucher tracking. But it also means paper vouchers are coming to an end. When? The Clerk's Office anticipates it will take three weeks to fully process all paper vouchers after the cut-off date. Accordingly, the Clerk's Office will accept paper vouchers received or post marked on or before August 18, 2015. After the August 18th cut-off date, all vouchers must be submitted through eVoucher.

Further, on August 18, you will begin receiving notice of appointments via eVoucher (along with the traditional CM/ECF notification). At that point, you will be able to begin using the new system to create your vouchers. But remember, all paper vouchers must be fully processed for payment before any eVouchers are processed. Thus, as part of the eVoucher transition and in order to avoid confusion, eVouchers can be created as of August 18th but should not be submitted for payment until the go live date of September 8, 2015. eVouchers submitted before September 8th will be electronically rejected by the Clerk's Office.

Please be advised that attorney training for eVoucher will take place via Webex and by limited in-person training the first two weeks in August. To ensure all attorneys have an opportunity to attend training, multiple training times will be made available. More detailed information regarding training will be announced in the very near future. In the meantime, keep your eye on the CJA page of the TXWD internet site for the most up to date information regarding eVoucher and please submit all paper vouchers as soon as possible. We look forward to serving you and to making this transition as smooth as possible.

CJA eVoucher
Posted: 4/1/2015

The U.S. District Court, Western District of Texas has begun taking steps to implement CJA eVoucher, the Judiciary's national electronic CJA voucher processing system. CJA eVoucher will change the way vouchers are processed in this district by eliminating paper and manual processes. Instead, attorneys, expert service providers & court reporters will be able to electronically submit vouchers to the court for review, audit and payment processing. For more information on this national Judiciary system please refer to the 2014 article posted on the website.

Be on the lookout for future announcements regarding the implementation of this exciting new system!
