Court of Protection Fees (Amendment) Order 2009

This Order amends the Court of Protection Fees Order 2007, which set out the fees to be charged for matters coming to the Court of Protection, by abolishing the fee for a certified copy of a document and providing for an additional circumstance under which fees may be exempted (i.e. if the relevant person is in receipt of income-related employment and support allowance). In force 1/4/09.
