French to English translations [PRO] Law (general)
French term or phrase:forfaitaire
...condemne XXX, XXX et XXX aux tiers des dépens, ceux d'appel étant liquidés à la somme de 876 FF, en ce compris les droits de poste et forfaitaire (84 + 125 FF);...
Does this means the following, postage and set costs?
Explanation: I reckon this is referring to the bailiff's service costs.
If I remember correctly, the standard list of costs of service start with "Article 6 - droit forfaitaire" etc.
I usually translate this as "fixed fee" or "fixed duty".
