How Will I Pay My Court Fee?

Jun 05, 2020

Many people stress about not being able to pay the £550 court fee when getting a divorce. Especially during these difficult times, the court fee may be the reason many people prolong their divorce or avoid it completely. 

This can take a toll on your life and prevent you from finally living the life you wish to live. Luckily there is a solution to this.

Just remember if you are on benefits or low income you may not have to pay the court fees.

Am I eligible?

If you receive one of the benefits below then you will not have to pay the court fees at all:

  • Income-based Job Seeker's Allowance
  • Income-related Employment & Support Allowance
  • Income support 
  • Pension Credit (Guarantee Credit)
  • Universal Credit (and you earn less that £6000 a year)

    There are savings limits too which we can look at, 

    A person on low income with minimal savings can get a part or full reduction.  If you have dependent children, or a partner living with you will be relevant.
