The attorney registration deadline is July 1.  Failure to register by July 1 will result in the assessment of a $125.00 late fee and the automatic removal from the Master Roll of Attorneys without further notice.

There are two (2) exceptions to the mandatory online filing requirement.  First, the Court will accept a single registration fee payment manually from an employer when the payment is for five (5) or more attorneys.  Single payments submitted by an employer for five (5) or more attorneys must be accompanied by a completed Annual Attorney Registration Statement Single Payment form which lists each attorney for whom payment is being submitted and which acknowledges that any changes to the registration information for those attorneys have been submitted online via RISCAP.  Single payment forms are available under the heading of Public Resources, Forms, Supreme Court on the Rhode Island Judiciary's website.

Second, attorneys may petition the Supreme Court for an exemption of the mandatory online filing requirement in accordance with the existing electronic filing waiver process set forth in Article X, Rule 3(c).

Attorneys will receive periodic reminders of the July 1 deadline but are encouraged to register online now to ensure timely registration.
