Civil and Family Proceedings Fees (Amendment) Order 2022

This Order, which will come into force on the day on which and immediately after sections 65 and 66 of the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 come into force, amends the Civil Proceedings Fees Order 2008 and the Family Proceedings Fees Order 2008. Articles 2 and 3 provide an exemption from paying specified fees in relation to applications for orders or directions relating to cross examination in person. Such applications will be those made by reference to the provisions of sections 85F-K of the Courts Act 2003 and sections 31R-W of the Matrimonial and Family Proceedings Act 1984, both of which were inserted by the Domestic Abuse Act 2021 (sections 66 and 65 respectively).
