Family analysis: A number of family and civil court forms will be revised with effect from 27 June 2016 in connection with the introduction of the 'Help with Fees' online service.
'Help with Fees' online service
Some family and civil court forms will be amended with effect from 27 June 2016 in connection with the introduction of the 'Help with Fees' online service (also known as the 'Fee Remission' online service)
The Help with Fees online scheme will allow court and tribunal users, whose personal circumstances mean that they may not have to pay a fee or pay a reduced fee, to make their application for help with court or tribunal fees online. The Help with Fees online service will generate a reference number which should be then endorsed on the form to be filed at the court or tribunal, and a reference box has been added to the relevant forms for the insertion of the reference number. Changes relate only to the new Help with Fees reference box, and the main sections of the forms will remain unchanged.
Court and tribunal users will still be able to make their Help with Fees application using form ‘EX160—Apply for Help with Fees’ paper form if they wish, and court and tribunal staff have been instructed to accept forms without the Help with Fees reference number as the new Help with Fees online service embeds.
