If you are not represented by an attorney and are ordering transcript related to your appeal, you must complete this form and mail it to the Clerk's Office at this address: United States Court of Appeal 540 Potter Stewart U.S. Courthouse 100 East Fifth Street Cincinnati, Ohio 45202 2. You must also provide a copy of this form to the court reporter along with your payment for the transcript. 3. Complete a separate form for each court reporter from whom you are ordering transcript. Do not include more than one court reporter on an order form. 4. If you have filed a proper transcript order form, the court of appeals clerk will forward the transcript order to the court reporter for processing. However, you must contact each court reporter from whom you are ordering transcript, provide a copy of this order, and pay for the transcript. 5. The court reporter will charge you the necessary fees for transcript. The court reporter may require you to pay all fees before beginning work on the transcript. NOTE: Being granted pauper status by the district court or leave to appeal in forma pauperis does not automatically entitle you to a free transcript. If you believe that you are entitled to transcript without paying the fee, you must file a motion for transcript at government expense, demonstrating that you are indigent and that the appeal is not frivolous but presents a substantial question. 6. Failure to arrange for payment of transcript, to properly order transcript, or to meet other court deadlines can result in the dismissal of your appeal. American LegalNet, Inc. www.FormsWorkFlow.com
