Fee changes in family law matters
From 15 October 2007, there will be some filing fee changes to applications filed in the Federal Magistrates Court of Australia (FMC) and the Family Court of Australia (FCA). The fee changes have occurred in an effort to align the fees between the two courts.
The changed fees are:
- Application for final orders – $145.
- Response to an application for final orders – $145.
- Hearing fee (defended matters) – $365 in the FMC; $500 in the FCA.
- Notice of appeal from a court of summary jurisdiction –$500.
