PROCEED IN FORMA PAUPERIS
NATIONAL AERONAUTICS AND SPACE
(Doc. No. 2)
On September 28, 2020, Plaintiff Maria Encar Arnold (“Plaintiff”), proceeding pro se,
filed the instant action. (Doc. No. 1.) Plaintiff did not pay the filing fee and instead filed an
application to proceed in forma pauperis pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915. (Doc. No. 2).

proceed without prepayment of fees in this action. According to the application, Plaintiff
receives $1,893.00 per month in Social Security benefits. (Doc. No. 2 at 2, 5.) Although she
also receives Social Security benefits for her children, child support and rent, it is unclear
whether the listed amounts are received weekly, monthly or annually or whether she has
additional mortgage and car expenses. (Id. at 2, 3.)
Accordingly, the Court will order Plaintiff to complete and file an Application to Proceed
in District Court Without Prepaying Fees or Costs (Long Form) – AO 239. If Plaintiff is
1 unwilling to complete and submit the long form application, Plaintiff must pay the filing fee in
Based upon the foregoing, it is HEREBY ORDERED that:

Form) – AO 239; and
If Plaintiff fails to comply with this order, this action shall be dismissed.
IT IS SO ORDERED.
