Domestic violence injunction fees scrapped

Change in force from 22 April

  • The MoJ has announced that fees for making an application for an injunction concerning domestic violence will be scrapped as from 22 April. It is part of a raft of changes - not all family law related about to be introduced following a recent consultation.

    The announcement also states that fees for adoption applications (£170), child contact applications (£215) and divorce financial arrangements (£255) will remain unchanged while applications to take children into care will reduce from from £5,475 (application and hearing fees) to £2,055.

    The full announcement can be read on the MoJ site.

    The MoJ has also released a qualitative study report exploring "why court users decide to seek redress through the civil and family courts and the role that court fees play in their decisions".

    That report can be found here.
