Court Fees in Civil Procedures in the Republic of Serbia

Court fees represent an important part of the costs in every legal proceeding. Matters related to court fees in the Republic of Serbia are currently regulated by the Law on Court Fees and the Fee Tariff contained within that law.

In civil proceedings, court fees are paid during or upon the conclusion of the proceedings. The court is not authorized to condition the initiation, continuation, or conclusion of a civil proceeding on the payment of court fees. In case of non-payment of court fees when due, the court can only initiate enforcement proceedings against the fee obligor for the forced collection of the unpaid court fees. In such a case, the amount of the unpaid fee obligation is increased by 50%, and the party against whom the enforcement proceedings are initiated is obliged to bear all the costs of the enforcement proceedings that arise.

In this article, JPM Senior Associate Aleksandar Grujić has provided a detailed account of the matter of court fees, frequently asked questions and potential dilemmas.
