Court Fees for Family Law matters set to increase.


Court fees for Family Law matters are set to increase on 1 July 2021. 


What are family court fees? 

They are the fees you are required to pay directly to the court when you have a family law matter. 


For example; to obtain a divorce the fee you need to pay the court now will increase from $930 to $940 (or $310) if you are entitled to a reduced fee.

And remember, if you have a family law matter, you can always book a family law strategy session with Coastal Lawyers. 

Our Family Law Strategy Sessions are an hour-long session with a Family Lawyer to discuss all things parenting, property and divorce. 

We have you complete a detailed questionnaire prior to our meeting so that we can spend our hour together answering your questions. These sessions are great for those thinking about separating or who have recently separated and who want more information and clarification around the separation process.
