Over the years women, who constitute the majority of the poor, have been marginalized and prejudiced of opportunities to accessing justice through the courts. They have faced cost deterrents in procuring legal representation and paying for court processes. High unemployment, minimal disposable incomes and living below the poverty datum line, with a family of 5 requiring about $571 per month, has deterred most from seeking justice from the courts. Court fees in domestic violence issues involved about £3.12, filing of a case also involved about £3.12. For urgent matters, for instance when urgent court interventions are required filing required £6. The frequency with which domestic violence cases erupt in one household meant that most women would be deterred from pursuing justice. The project lobbied for the removal or reduction of these court fees to enable access to justice for women principally, and all victims of domestic violence.
