This Consultation Paper describes the Government’s strategy for developing the fees system in the civil and family courts of England and Wales, and sets out for consultation proposals to:

  • make changes to court fees in relation to Public Law Children Act process; and
  • make changes to fees charged for Adoption proceedings.

Views were also sought on how fees could be structured in relation to Care Proceedings.
