Paralegal Reminder : FRP Renewal Fees Due – 1 Week Left Before $40 LATE FEE
If you are an FRP, your fees were due on July 1, 2012. You still have until August 15, 2012 before they are considered late. If you pay after August 15, 2012 you will get hit with a $40 late charge (do you really want to pay $190 instead of $150?) – don’t ASSUME they have been paid if someone else is paying them for you – DOUBLE CHECK. You can check your status by logging in on the Florida Bar’s website. It will either show that you need to pay or that you are paid in full.
If no fee is received by September 30, 2012 your Florida Registered Paralegal status will be revoked – this isn’t a joke folks. If you do not pay by September 30, 2012, don’t be surprised when your FRP number disappears from the FRP member list and you are told that you have to reapply – from scratch. If you qualified under the grandfathering clause and you allow your membership to be revoked because you slipped up and made a late payment, you are going to be in a really bad position. Please pay your dues timely. Hopefully your firm will be paying them for you!!
