Criminal Justice Act Electronic Vouchers

Updated December 31, 2013
 

The circuit has adopted an on-line system to seek reimbursement under the Criminal Justice Act. The system was developed by the Nevada district court and is also used by many other districts in the circuit. On-line preparation of the voucher will simplify the bar's billing process and will additionally speed submission and review of the claims.  Below are resources to permit use of the system to file eVouchers in the Court of Appeals. District court access should be sought within each district.

If you are having trouble logging in, or cannot get to the login screen, you may be using an old version of Internet Explorer. Click here for steps on how to run eVoucher in compatibility mode.
