There may be instances when filers see that more than one charge is pending for once for a single filing. This is due to the fact that the court’s system pre-authorizes their fees each time a user submits a filing.

If the court rejects the filing, then they do not settle that pre-authorization. Eventually that amount falls off the filer’s card. The time it takes to fall off can range from three to ten business days from the date and time of the rejection (depending on the banking institution).

Additionally, when rejected filings do occur, and a filer re-submits the corrected filing, the court does another pre-authorization. Once they accept it, they settle that transaction.

In the mean time, filers may see multiple pending charges on their credit card account. However, the pre-authorizations for the rejected documents will drop off the bank account.
