Substantive certificates for family work issued after 1 May 2016 will have a £5,000 cost limitation as standard
Standard cost limitations in family law cases are changing and this will affect substantive certificates sent out after 1 May 2016.
The new cost limitation after 1 May will be £5,000. There will be no changes to ‘emergency delegated functions’ certificates where the standard £1,350 will apply.
All applications with limitations currently set at more than £5,000 will remain at their higher cost limitation. For example, Special Children Act proceedings.
