Note: From January 1st 2014 the fee for an Islamic divorce application will be increased by £25 to £125 for applications made by men and £175 for applications made by women.

We have recently been asked to clarify the difference in fee for men and women. The fee for an application for Islamic divorce is determined by the length of time and administrative effort required to process applications, it is not based simply on the gender of the applicant.

In the case of applications made by men, administrative effort is based on the Council's role in providing a verification of the divorce issued by the husband, this usually takes up to 2 weeks.

In the case of applications made by women, the Council must conduct much longer proceedings, which involves many steps and engagement with both the husband and the wife, this can take up to 3-6 months.
