Graduated Fee Scheme Changes

Helen Ford

Family Fee Scheme

The new scheme for claiming family graduated fees comes into effect from 15 November 2010 although the changes are currently subject to Judicial Review.

When the new Family Advocate Scheme (FAS) is adopted there will a new table of rates and claiming structure that will use a new form designated Claim 5A.

The LSC are currently running training sessions in readiness for FAS, details of which are available on the LSC website by following this link

Criminal RAGFS (Carter) Scheme

From 18 October 2010 a new claim form with additional information is being introduced. Details of all defendants including certificate numbers and dates, along with all indictment numbers will be required. It is our intention to enhance LEX to cater for these changes and upgrade systems with the new rates and claim form prior to 18 October 2010. Claims will continue in paper form.

From 4 January 2011 it is the intention of the LSC that claim forms be submitted electronically, either via the LSC Portal using their CCR application, which will entail the entry of information from the claim form into the CCR via a secure online tool, or via a link from LEX that will generate an XML file of claims requiring submission that will be updated in bulk via the LCS Portal.

A pilot scheme to test the bulk upload of claims will commence in mid November/early December to an early adopter group in conjunction with the software vendors. This will allow us to test the system in advance of the go-live date and give us valuable feedback.
