A fee of £5 is payable where a request has been made for a copy of documents filed during court proceedings.

Who Is Responsible?

For the Application fee, Appeal fee and Hearing fee, the person making the Application or Appeal is responsible for payment.

For the Copy of Document fee, payment responsibility lies with the person making the request.

Payment Recovery

A fee recovery system is in place for the Court of Protection, but unfortunately only applies to certain cases. For property and affairs applications, the applicant can recover the fees from the person who lacks capacity.

For personal welfare matters however, the applicant must pay the fee themselves and expenses are not recoverable.

In cases where the applicant already acts as the Deputy however, and has incurred court costs from carrying out their duties, expenses may be recovered regardless of whether the situation relates to a personal welfare or property matter.
