Filing a Claim

Claim Form Instructions

Attorneys, interpreters and experts who provide legal services for indigent defendants are required to submit claim forms to receive compensation. Supreme Court Rule 13 governs the guidelines for compensation from the indigent defense fund. Please read the compensation instructions for information about compensation and the filing process.

Pursuant to an order filed February 6, 2013,  that effective July 1, 2013, the AOC will no longer accept paper claims from attorneys and interpreters seeking reimbursement from the Indigent Defense Fund.  Claims must be submitted on-line via the ACAP system.
