Pauper's Affidavit (Request to File without Paying Fees)

Authored By: Georgia Legal Services Program® LSC Funded

The Pauper's Affidavit, also known as a "pauperis" affidavit, can be filed by very low-income persons to avoid paying filing fees to the court. Usually the judge will review the affidavit and make a decision about whether you have to pay fees or not. If you file this affidavit, you must be ready to respond to the judge about your income.
