On Monday, December 7, 2015 the Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals adopted the online eVoucher system for reimbursement under the Criminal Justice Act. Because of the court’s conversion to a new voucher processing system, the court will no longer be able to process any vouchers in a paper format received after December 1, 2015. All paper claims will be returned without processing.

Training materials and links to assist you in the use of the system appear below.
