4) PREPAYMENT OF COSTS - M.R.A.P. 11

Within 7 days after filing the Notice of Appeal, the appellant shall deposit with the lower court clerk an estimated sum for transcript and record preparation. Upon payment of the estimated costs, the appellant files with the lower court clerk a Certificate of Compliance setting forth that the costs have been paid and serves a copy on the court reporter, appellee and Supreme Court Clerk. If dissatisfied with the amount deposited, the lower court clerk and/or court reporter can apply for an increase with the trial court judge. The appellant must comply with the order granting any increase within 14 days after entry. The cost of record preparation is adjusted and then the actual cost is determined. If additional costs are due, the record will not be filed with the Supreme Court until those costs are paid. The court reporter will not begin transcribing the proceedings until the Certificate of Compliance has been served. The court reporter will file an Acknowledgment upon receipt from the appellant of the Certificate of Compliance. The court reporter has 60 days to prepare the transcript. After the transcript is filed, the lower court clerk has 30 days to assemble the Clerk's papers. This portion of the appeal record consists of copies of designated papers and exhibits filed in the trial court.
