A civil action is any legal action that is not a criminal action. Civil actions are between private individuals, unlike criminal actions which are between the crown and the accused. Examples of civil actions are claims for debt, for damages arising from motor vehicle accidents, divorces, adoptions, matrimonial property actions, foreclosures, and administration of estates following a death.

When the judgment in the case has been delivered, the judge must deal the cost of the case. This may include the fees of any lawyers, court fees paid by the parties fees of expert witnesses, allowances that may be allowed to litigants who have acts in person (without lawyers), earnings lost and travelling and other expenses incurred by the parties and their witnesses.

Lawyers' Costs and Fees: Fees and Fixed Costs in Civil Actions lists the costs and fees attributable to civil actions within courts and tribunals.

The fully revised and updated 24th edition covers:
- fee changes to the Court of Appeal Fees effective from 18 April, 2016 (Court of Appeal and Upper Tribunal (Lands Chamber) Fees (Amendment) Order 2016, SI 2016/434)
- fee changes brought about by the Civil Proceedings, Family Proceedings and Upper Tribunal Fees (Amendment) Order 2016 effective from 21 March, 2016
