Raise in Court Fees

The Scottish Government’s Fees Orders for Court of Session, Sheriff Court, High Court, Justice of the Peace court and Office of the Public Guardian  fees took effect from Monday 10 December 2012. That means in the Sheriff Court  the fees for an initial writ in an action of divorce or dissolution of a civil partnership are now £136,  or £104 under the simplified procedure. Initial writs in proceedings which are not prescribed in the table are £87.  Further information and fees tables available from the  Scottish Courts website.

Almost nominal in amount compared to across the border. Here in England it is £340 to issue a divorce petition.

Yes I suppose it is quite reasonable in comparison to England & Wales, although it is almost double what it was a six or seven years ago.
