Courts fees

Important note - Changes to fees

The Justice Legislation (Fees) Amendment Regulation (No.1) 2016 was approved by the Governor in Council on 16 June 2016, which amends regulated fees and charges in Queensland.

The regulation commences on 1 July 2016.

Amendments to Criminal Practice Rules Fees

Rule 56A of the Criminal Practice Rules 1999 allows non-parties to make an application to a trial judge (including a magistrate) during or after the trial in a criminal proceeding to copy an exhibit tendered in the matter.

The Criminal Practice (Fees) Regulation has been amended to clarify which fees apply for these applications. A filing fee applies for the Rule 56A application to inspect an exhibit, as do copy fees.

There is also a fee for the opening of a registry out of hours for the purposes of a Rule 56A application or copying the exhibit.

Please see the Criminal Practice (Fees) Regulation 2010 for further information.
