Executive Summary

This consultation seeks views on proposals for fee changes for services offered by the courts and the Office of the Public Guardian (OPG). Fees ensure that those who make use of the civil courts and the services of the OPG, meet or contribute towards the associated costs to the public purse, where they can afford to do so. The levels of court and OPG fees are prescribed by Scottish Ministers under statutory powers.
