How to handle charges for legal documents in Alberta

November 9, 2023

Roster lawyers handling family cases often require legal documents like marriage certificates, birth certificates, land titles, and personal property registries. This raises a common question: How are Government of Alberta charges billed?

To enhance invoicing efficiency and simplify the process, these charges should be categorized as “Court Searches” billable under 17.15, rather than special disbursement claims.
This straightforward approach requires no prior authorization; lawyers can bill without additional approvals. Please ensure to submit receipts supporting your tariff item claim.

If you have more questions about invoicing, tariffs, and payments or need help, please get in touch.
