LGR 34
WAIVER OF COURT AND CLERK'S FEES AND CHARGES IN CIVIL MATTERS ON THE BASIS OF INDIGENCY

(a) A party may seek waiver of fees to obtain a compact disc or transcript of a hearing if necessary to resolve a motion before the Superior Court. To do so, the party must make a motion to the judge who is assigned to the case or to the motion at issue (such as revision motion). The judge will assess whether the party is indigent under GR 34 and whether the requested service is a condition precedent to the litigant’s ability to secure access to judicial relief.
(2) A motion for fee waiver is not ready for review by a judicial officer until the applicant has presented to the court a complaint or petition and any other documents required to start a case, which can be filed immediately upon granting a fee waiver.
