Catalogue of Values in Dispute

Court fees are charged for cases heard before the Federal Administrative Court. The German Court Fees Act (Gerichtskostengesetz) provides the legal foundation. The value in dispute is the basis to determine the court fees. This is set by the Court. The amount of the value in dispute depends on the purpose of the proceedings. Suggestions to set the value in dispute are contained in the Catalogue of Values in Dispute (Streitwertkatalog). Statutory lawyers' fees also depend on the calculated value in dispute.
