As of June 11, 2015, the Board is pleased to announce that non-resident attorneys who are seeking permission to participate in a Texas proceeding can now submit the required fee online using a credit card or electronic check. The Non-Resident Attorney Fee Submission Form, which now must be completed on-line, has been streamlined, and notarization is no longer required. Acknowledgment Letters can be delivered by e-mail, fax, or regular mail. If a fee is submitted online, an Acknowledgment letter will be sent out by the end of the next business day. This is the first step toward the Board’s goal of offering electronic payment options for all fees handled by the Board. Beginning August 1, 2015, all Non-Resident Attorney fees must be submitted online. For more information, see Non-Resident Attorney Fee (Pro Hac Vice) Edited 7/15/15.
