Divorce court fees to rise

No Comments 2476 Views0

The cost of getting divorced is to rise by about a third after the government announced increased court fees.

From later this year, husbands or wives who want to end their marriage will pay £550 in England and Wales, a rise of £140.

It will still be possible to apply for a fee exemption if you are able to prove you are on a low income.  If that doesn’t apply to you and you have been planning to start a divorce you may wish to consider starting the process before the fee rise comes into effect. There is no definite date yet but it will be before the end of the year.
