Abstract
Civil procedure reform opens the debate about the need to shift costs to those subjects who litigate the most. This paper attempts to address some of the most relevant arguments foreseeing some of the consequences of introducing or not court fees in Chile's legal system by highlighting some of their features in comparative law. In this context, aspects of tax law, civil procedure law and constitutional law shall be appraised by our lawmakers before making a decision that can change the gratuity of justice in Chile.
