Copy and Fee Requirements

Due to internal changes, the Prothonotary’s Offices have reduced the number of required copies for certain pleadings, and the answers thereto, being filed with the Supreme Court - the numbers of required copies listed on this notice supersede the Rules of Appellate Procedure (Pa.R.A.P. 105).

If you don’t see your filing below AND if your filing is ancillary to a case already on appeal in the Supreme Court, an original and one (1) copy of your filing is required. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to contact the Prothonotary’s office.

IF USING PACFile only an archival copy is required at this time. After your document is accepted by the Prothonotary’s Office please print your time-stamped copy and mail within seven (7) days.
