The person appealing (the appellant) must request the Record on Appeal by filing the form: Request for Preparation of Record on Appeal (CCA 0025
The Civil Appeals Division will not
prepare a Record on Appeal unless that form has been filed. A deposit of $110, to be applied against the final fee due, is required.
Failure to request preparation of the Record in a timely manner, i.e., at least 30 days before it is due to the Appellate Court, may require the Appellant to file a request for extension of time with the Appellate Court.
If the party appealing has an approved fee waiver in the same Circuit Court case, a copy of that order should be attached to the Request form at the time of filing.
The Request form may be filed at the same time as the Notice of Appeal or it may be filed afterwards. However, the Clerk's Office will not begin preparation of the Record on Appeal until the Request form and payment are received.
The Request form is filed in the Civil Appeals Division, located in Room 801 of the Richard J. Daley Center. It may also be electronically filed. The form is also available in the Civil Appeals Division.
