FOCUS OF THE DAY: The government has confirmed increases in court fees for divorce proceedings, possession claims, and general applications in civil proceedings and announced a new consultation on further hikes. This means that fees will increase: from £280 to £355 for issuing a possession claim in the county court; from £50 to £100 for general applications in civil proceedings for an application by consent and from £155 to £255, for a contested application (extensions to vary or extend an injunction for protection from harassment or violence are excluded); and from £410 to £550 for issuing divorce proceedings (with fee remission for those who need it, such as women in low wage households).
