Fees for all services required in connection with a legal matter, apart from solicitor's fees, the payment of which is attended to by the legal practitioner conducting the matter (at the client's expense) are commonly known within the legal profession as “disbursements”.Depending on the circumstances of the matter, disbursements may include expenses such as witness fees, court filing and hearing fees, interpreter's fees and fees for the service of court documents such as subpoenas. A legal aid grant may cover these fees.
