Court and Tribunal fees

Fees are payable for some processes within courts and tribunals. For courts, the most common fees are set out in leaflet EX50 - Civil and Family Court Fees - High Court, County Court and Family Proceedings Courts.

Remission system

We want to make sure that access to courts and tribunals is available to all. In certain circumstances, individuals may not have to pay a fee. A system known as the remission system is available to those who would have difficulty paying a fee and meet the appropriate criteria.

Customers wishing to apply for a remission must use the following forms and leaflets.
