TOPIC: Court cost reduction.

Court cost reduction. 6 years 7 months ago #42654

Can anyone tell me if there is an ability in getting a reduction on court costs (contact order) based on a low income???

I am well aware that legal aid is as good as gone and is only given in exceptional cases. So, that's not even an option for me.

yes mate, I think the form for fee remission is EX160 (though I could be wrong on that. If you are on benefits it will be free to apply, or if you are on a low income it may be reduced or even free if your income is low. you can get a guide with the form.

Brilliant, thanks!!! I'll look in to that some more

I'm not on benefits and work full time but sadly, my income is as low as a P/T worker. right now, I'm just grateful to even have a job while sadly many others are less fortunate.
