The Clerk’s Office strongly encourages payment of attorney admissions fees, original proceeding filing fees, and fees for certificates of good standing via Pay.Gov rather than by check or money order. If, however, payment by check or money order is necessary, the check or money order must be made payable to Clerk, Tenth Circuit Court of Appeals.
