The highlights of the changes in the Attorney Secure Pass program (instituted in 2015) are:
– Attorneys may opt to renew their Secure Pass ID cards by logging on to www.nycourts.gov
– Login will require Attorney Online Services user name & password (same as Attorney Registration and NYSCEF)
– A Secure Pass will now remain valid for 5 years
– The cost of an Attorney Secure Pass will increase from $25 to $50
– Online renewals will use current photo on file
– Online renewals will require only a single courthouse visit to pick -up the new ID Card and verify identity
– Note: Attorneys applying for their first Secure Pass ID Card MUST continue to use the paper form and submit in person and pick -up in person (new paper forms reflecting the new $50.00 cost are available at trial-level courthouses).
