UPDATE: As part of the CJA eVoucher v5.2 Upgrade, there will be a new associate functionality that will allow a court appointed attorney who uses the services of an associate to add claims to their CJA 20/30 voucher. In order to do this, the court appointed attorney must first contact the Court via email at and provide the associate’s pertinent information so that they can be entered in to eVoucher and added to the appointment. Once completed, the attorney may then add the associate’s services and expenses to their CJA 20/30 on that appointment. This must be done on an individual case-by-case basis. When entering an associate’s time on a voucher, please make sure to select the “On Voucher, No Edit” option in the “Associate Info” section as the services and expenses will need to be entered on the voucher by the court appointed attorney. Please refer to both the “Associates Functionality” and “Creating a CJA20 Voucher” job aids under the Version 5.2 Job Aids.
