U-turn by HMCTS to increasing Divorce Application Fees

Following our recent up regarding His Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) increasing the divorce application fee in April, His Majesty’s Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) have now performed a U-turn and the divorce application fee is now not going to rise after all after being told higher fees could force couples to remain in unhappy or abusive relationships.  The court fee for an application for divorce now  remains at £593.00.

Divorce application fees will remain at £593. As the Law Gazette reports:- “consultation respondents raised concerns about the impact of a higher fee on access to justice and particularly on women, as they were more likely to apply for divorce than men. ‘They stated that women tend to face more difficulties when navigating the justice system as they may have caring responsibilities and are statistically more likely to be on lower incomes given the gender pay gap,’ the consultation response says.”
