MoJ imposes 34% divorce fee increase

MoJ  imposes 34% divorce fee increase

From  Monday 21 March 2016 the fee for a divorce application will rise from £410 to £550.

The family law community has expressed its deep disappointment at the decision to impose the 34% increase and the way in which it has been communicated (or not, as the case may be) by the Ministry of Justice.

The divorce process is not an optional one if a party wishes to end their marriage. Increasing the fee could lead to further disharmony between divorcing couples adding to the already difficult situation they may be facing. Fee increases are never welcomed regardless of the area in which they are imposed, but this one in particular is disheartening.
