It is very important that you maintain complete and accurate records reflecting the time spent in conference with your client, as well as the advice or instructions provided. You should have a record of your time in Court on behalf of your client, in addition to anything else done in connection with that case. Please use the worksheets below to satisfy this requirement.
The Clerk's Office staff will audit your voucher to ensure that your claims are allowable under the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) and the Guidelines for the Administration of the Criminal Justice Act (Guidelines), adopted by the Judicial conference of the United States. The staff will reduce claims that exceed the limits and will strike claims that are not allowable under the Act or the Guidelines. Your claim will be reviewed for reasonableness and compliance with the CJA and the Guidelines by the United States District Judge or Magistrate Judge who presided over your case.
