We appreciate that it is natural to be concerned about the potential costs of a divorce.
This is why our divorce specialists offer a fixed fee service for an uncontested divorce, providing certainty about your legal fees in the case.
In most uncontested cases, obtaining the divorce will take between four and six months and it is very unlikely that you will need to attend court.
Our fixed fee service for petitioners
If you are the petitioner, on the basis that your divorce is not contested, our fee for obtaining the decree absolute is from £450, plus VAT.
For this fixed fee, we will handle the uncontested divorce process from start to finish, including:
- gathering all the relevant details
- corresponding with other parties
- preparing and filing all the relevant paperwork with the court
- providing access to your dedicated divorce lawyer by email and telephone.
Our fixed fee service for respondents
We also offer a fixed fee service for respondents in divorce proceedings and can assist them in completing the necessary paperwork. The cost of this service is from £225, plus VAT.
If you are the petitioner you may have to pay a court fee of £550. This must be paid at the outset, to start the divorce.
Depending on your financial circumstances, you may be eligible for a fee remission. Please note that it is your responsibility for completing the fee remission form and providing the necessary supporting documentation. If you fail to provide all documentary evidence as required then the Court will simply reject your application.
