It is reported that following consultations in the Spring of 2021, and despite the majority of respondents opposing court fee increase, the government is set to increase some court fees for the first time since 2016. As a result, later this year the cost of divorce application in England and Wales is expected to rise from £550.00 to £593.00 as of September 30th 2021, representing a 7% increase.
“We at Harold Stock & Co intent to offer a competitive fixed fee service for undefended divorce cases”, said family law solicitor Chris Bowen. “However if you are planning to divorce in the near future, we advise you to issue your divorce application promptly to avoid the price rise caused by the £42.00 increase in the Court fee.”
