Proposed court fee increases
The Ministry of Justice has issued a consultation paper, Civil Court Fees 2008, on proposed increases in certain court fees (closing date 4/3/09). The most eye watering increase is the fee for filing a request for a detailed assessment hearing by a legally aided party where no other party is ordered to pay the costs of the proceedings. The proposed increase is from the current £105 up to a new figure of up to £5,000.
