Table S sets out the fixed fees payable by Victoria Legal Aid (VLA) for expert reports and court attendances by psychologists and psychiatrists in criminal matters.
These fees are effective from 1 January 2017. For fees payable prior to this see Archived versions of the Handbook.
Evidentiary report to establish:
Before the assisted person incurs the fee, there must be explicit factual material which confirms a reasonable expectation of an organic psychiatric condition.
Practitioners can claim these fees using ATLAS or submitting a tax invoice.
