Family Fee Schemes – in force 9th May

The Family Advocacy Scheme and the revised private law fee scheme come into force on the 9th May for all certificates issued by the LSC on or after 9th May 2011, except those cases where the application was signed prior to 9th May and received by the LSC prior to 16th May 2011 (para 8 of the Funding Order).

The Handbook contains a detailed discussion of the schemes and the associated changes to the Unified Contract which also come into force on that date.

The full Statutory Instrument can be found here – details of the changes to the private law scheme are in Schedule 3 and the advocacy scheme in Schedule 4 (the fees are in Schedule 2).
