Petitioner has filed a Petition for Writ of Habeas Corpus under 28 U.S.C. § 2254 (Filing No. 1), and a Motion for Leave to Proceed in Forma Pauperis (Filing No. 2).

However, pursuant to 28 U.S.C. § 1915(a)(1)-(2), and after considering Petitioner's financial status as shown in the records of this court, provisional leave to proceed in forma pauperis will be granted and Petitioner is relieved from paying the fee at this time.
