Family Court Fees To Rise: What This Means for Families Seeking Justice

When you divorce, you need to pay the court a fee. This money is used by His Majesty's Courts and Tribunals Service (HMCTS) to maintain the system, ensuring it’s properly funded with enough resources to keep up with the demands of people seeking divorce.

What do you need to know?

The main most important point is that the cost of divorce / civil partnership dissolution is set to increase to £652 from £593, with this change taking place in Spring 2024, most likely in April or May.

What Does This Mean For You?

This increase means most divorcing couples will need to pay a larger court fee to get their divorce finalised. But this doesn’t mean there aren’t things that can’t be done to make things a little easier financially.

Get Help With Court Fees!

As well as the court fee increasing, the threshold for those who can apply for reduction or full waiver of fees has increased. This means more people are entitled to help and support with fees. If you are concerned about the cost of getting divorced, give us a call and we will guide you through the fee exemption process and let you know how much reduction you will receive.


With the recent changes to the HMCTS, court fees are going to increase. Changing laws and changing processes can make what is an already stressful and difficult time that much harder. Don’t worry, we are here to help.
