Fourth Dept.



are you talking about the 375 attorney fee that the 4th department mailed to us using green paper? I think you send it directly to the NYC address on the form.

Hmmm. did not receive this.

Mine was in the packet that with the letter dated from August. If you call the Department tomorrow ( the number is on the website) they will tell you where to get the form, download it and fill it out ( it takes longer to download than to complete)

No need to bring anything, but if you're in the 1st Department at least, make sure to mail your application/check before your interview. Lots of people on Tuesday were sent running to the post office.


I thought the first department didn't even schedule interviews until after your application was submitted? I haven't heard anything about an interview yet, but I hope to send in my application next week.


I dropped my packet off in person a day or so after results came out. Getting sworn in tomorrow. But everyone else I know hasn't even turned in their app, so don't worry about it.

Edit: just realized you were asking about the part where I said to mail your application I'm before interviewing. When they schedule the interview, there is a 1 page form they send you to fill out and send in with a $350 check. This is what has to be submitted prior to the interview.


Ah, OK, that makes sense. I'm guessing they want cash or check, no credit card. Asking for a friend who is also poor and underemployed.

ETA: It looks like you can use a card. http://www.nycourts.gov/attorneys/regis ... ndex.shtml
Not sure if I can pay by card for this first payment, but I guess I'll find out when I get the letter.

My app was delivered to the 1st department about two weeks ago. Radio silence. Normal, right?

Not to freak you out, but I hand-delivered mine at the 1st dep't last Wednesday and got my interview date / swearing in ceremony in the mail today. That said, different reviewers have different processes / timings, so that doesn't mean much.

So I just got my interview / swearing in date in the mail, after filing for 1st dep't last Wed. I was worried that a few C&F questions would hold me up, so I'm wondering if this means that they won't be an issue or it just means that they've received my app.

They said it cant be downloaded. Has to be mailed. I wonder if this will delay me.

Second Department. Mailed via registered mail around 11/12. Have not heard anything.



So I called yesterday to inquire about my application. They said that my application was marked as complete on 12/5, and I should be receiving some communication about an interview sometime this week.

Good to know. I still haven't heard anything, so I guess it's time for me to call as well. Thanks for the info!

Any update from 3rd Department? I got an e-mail that they already got my application before Thanksgiving, but never heard from them since then.

Does this mean you essentially passed the C&F part? Because you were given an interview date?

Is there anything one can do to prepare for the interview?

Has anyone else in the Second Department had problems with attaining codes from the online Orientation to the Profession course? I just watched all the videos and didn't hear them give any of the codes and am a little confused

What would you prepare for? I thought the interview was a formality and they just ask you basic questions about your application/life/legal job/etc.

How do you track down traffic ticket info?

I was traveling out of state and I got a traffic ticket in 2011. It was in VA but I have no idea the county (there are ~95 counties).

https://www.dmv.virginia.gov/general/#r ... p...should be on there, and other states should have similar request options.
