New family court fees - Many family court fees went up on 30th September 2021. For example, to apply for a divorce or final order to end a civil partnership it now costs £593. Many fees for applications about children are now £232.

So, before you decide to ask the court for an order check how much you may have to pay. If you are on a low income make sure you take a look at our short guide on getting help with fees.

If you are going through a difficult time with your family, we are here to support you through it. We recognise the hard reality that getting much help from a solicitor is financially difficult or impossible for many people. And so, we aim to help you with the knowledge, skills and confidence that you need to navigate your way through, to a happier future. 

Our survival guides can help you understand divorce and family mediation, agree arrangements for your children, how to divide the money and property when you divorce,  or sort out Parental Responsibility issues,  or if you really need to go to court our How to guides can help you through the process and you reduce the stress and expense. We also have help  for victims of domestic violence to apply for an injunction, and know-how's that explain how to get legal aid or help with court fees.
