Criminal Justice Act

The U.S. District Court for the Middle District of Pennsylvania has implemented a new automated CJA eVoucher program which will eliminate the need to submit paper vouchers.  All vouchers are now processed electronically, thus expediting approval and payment.

**If you are logged into eVoucher and are inactive for more than 90 minutes any previous judges' approvals will be erased, so when finished with your voucher(s) please log out.**

**System maintenance will be performed on the Saturday after the third Tuesday of each month from 5:00 A.M. to 11:00 P.M.**
