The Motion shall be accompanied by a check or money order in the amount of $30.00 payable to the Clerk of the Court of Appeals of Georgia and by a check or money order in the amount of $200.00 payable to the Court of Appeals of Georgia. The motion may be made by the attorney requesting pro hac vice appearance or a member of the Bar of this Court on behalf of the attorney requesting pro hac vice appearance.
