Help with court fees calculator – more details

Court fees for divorce are set by the Government. To apply for a divorce in England and Wales, the mandatory court fee is £593.

Legal professionals and commentators were hoping for court fees to be reduced in line with the introduction of no-fault divorce.

Court costs are one of the main reasons couples delay starting their divorce. Leaving a marriage shouldn’t put you in financial difficulty, but it does for many couples.

Our court fee calculator was designed to help divorcing couples find out whether they are expected to pay the full amount or if they can get assistance (remission).

If you’re on a low income or receive certain benefits, you could potentially save hundreds of pounds by using our tool and claiming a fee remission.
