The following PI & Clinical Negligence guidance note Produced in partnership with David Willink of Lamb Chambers provides comprehensive and up to date legal information covering:
Court and tribunal fees are, for many, prohibitively high. For those in the most straitened circumstances, fee remissions, now branded 'help with fees', may be available. In order to qualify, applicants must meet strict financial criteria on both savings and income. Help may cover all or only some of the fee payable, depending on the financial criteria.
Governing legislation: Courts and Tribunals Fee Remissions Order 2013, SI 2013/2302, amending the Civil Proceedings Fees Order 2008, SI 2008/1053. And see CPR 3.7 for fee remissions in the context of sanctions for non-payment of court fees.
Guide on how to apply for help with fees, see: Apply for help with court and tribunal fees.
Online portal for applying for help with fees, see: Get help paying court and tribunal fees.
Application to print and complete manually:
English: Apply for help with fees.
Welsh: Gwneud cais am help i dalu ffioedd.

in respect of proceedings brought to recover a sum of money through Money Claim OnLine
