This note is not part of the regulations, but is intended to indicate their general effect.
These regulations, which come into force on 1 July 2011, amend the Family Courts Fees Regulations 2009. The amendments increase the fees payable for filing applications under sections 27, 29, 32, and 37 of the Family Proceedings Act 1980. The changes reflect the movement in the Consumers Price Index (All Groups) since the date when the fees were last set.
The fees replaced are inclusive of goods and services tax (GST), but were not amended directly to reflect the 1 October 2010 GST increase, and so differed from those actually charged. The new fees are also GST inclusive.
Date of notification in Gazette: 26 May 2011.
These regulations are administered by the Ministry of Justice.
