Avoiding Duplicate Charges/ Payments – Online Credit Card Payments

When making payments in CM/ECF via Pay.gov, please remember the following:

  • Do not use the browser button at any time during the payment process. • Do not double-click the “Submit payment” button at any time.
  • If you have submitted payment and you encounter computer problems, do not attempt to submit payment again.

Doing any of the above may result in a duplicate charge to the attorney’s credit card. If at any time you experience any problems with processing your payment or have questions concerning payment, please contact the ECF Help Desk at (213) 894- 2365 between the hours of 9 a.m. and 4 p.m., Monday through Friday, excluding federal holidays.
