Divorce Dissolution Court Fee Increase – Reminder

Divorce Court Fees Increase

Divorce Dissolution Court Fees Increase

Divorce Court Fees: The court fee for obtaining a divorce or civil partnership dissolution is set to rise from £410 to £550 shortly. This is an increase of over 34%.

In an initial consultation on court fees, the Government proposed raising the fee to £750, an 80% increase, but decided against this this in January 2015.

It is still possible to apply to the court for a reduction or remission from this fee in certain situations, such as if you are in receipt of certain benefits.

If you are considering issuing divorce proceedings and the court fee will have an impact on you, contact our Family Law team to discuss how we can help.
