Court fee for divorce in court

Court fee for divorce in court

The court fee is one of the types of mandatory fees, the payment procedure and amounts of which are regulated by tax legislation. The amount of this tax is established:

  • in a fixed amount;
  • as a percentage.

Regarding divorce, the amount of the court fee will differ depending on where exactly the divorce procedure is carried out.

Thus, with the joint consent of the spouses or the desire of one of them, provided that there are no minor children in the family or the man is considered missing or declared incompetent, family relations can be terminated administratively by submitting an appropriate application to the civil registry office.

In such cases, the amount of the state duty is determined by the Tax Code of Ukraine.

In other cases, the divorce procedure is carried out in court, which provides for other rules for the calculation and payment of this fee.

Amount of court fee for divorce through court

If spouses break off their marital relationship through the court, then they need to pay a court fee.

The first time this happens is when filing a claim. Along with it, according to the Civil Procedure Code of Ukraine, the plaintiff must provide a receipt confirming payment of the court fee. It should be remembered that this amount is paid in one payment document.

The interested party may compensate for the expenses incurred by him in accordance with the procedure established by the Civil Procedure Code of Ukraine. To do this, a separate paragraph in the statement of claim must reflect the demand for reimbursement by the defendant of legal costs in the case.

Let us note that if one of the divorcees does not agree with the divorce court’s decision, then he has the right to file an appeal and cassation complaint to the highest courts.

Often, in a statement of claim, a demand for divorce is combined with a demand for the division of jointly acquired property. Then services for two different disputes are paid separately from each other.

If, simultaneously with the request for divorce, the applicant submits to the court a demand for alimony, then he only pays the court fee for divorce. The plaintiff is exempt from the mandatory fee for considering the issue of determining alimony.

However, it will have to be paid to the defendant in the amount established by current legislation. In addition, the alimony payer will have to additionally pay the amount approved by the court decision, determined after consideration of the case and directly dependent on the amount of satisfied claims for alimony.

Payment of court fees in case of divorce through court

The court fee is paid before submitting a statement of claim to the court and a completed court decision to the civil registry office (state fee) for registering the divorce and issuing the corresponding certificate. Each authority has its own bank details, which can be obtained directly from the offices of these institutions.

You can pay the mandatory fee at bank branches or do it online, but in any case you will receive a receipt for payment of the court fee. Recently, in large cities, bank terminals are located directly in courts or nearby, thereby simplifying the procedure for paying court fees (state fees).

At the same time, do not forget that after paying the court fee (state fee), you must take care of confirming your payment in the form of a receipt, check or other payment document. You should be more careful when making payments online.

The main thing is to correctly determine the jurisdiction of your divorce case, including territorial jurisdiction, so that the money goes exactly where it is needed. The payment document must be in the established form and, in addition to information about the payer of the fee, must contain a number of other required fields, including the amount and purpose of payment, the date of payment, etc.

Many people are interested in the question related to the payment deadline. In the current regulatory legal acts there is no such concept as the validity period of a receipt for payment of state duty. However, in legal practice, certain points are still highlighted by which the validity of the listed fee for the provision of certain services is established and the state registration of the civil act was not carried out, accordingly.
