Fixed Fee Divorce
When you and your spouse have agreed to obtain a divorce, assuming the other party does not formally object to the divorce and the Court accepts the grounds for divorce without question (which is normally the case), this is known as a uncontested divorce.
In this situation, we can progress your divorce petition through to Decree Absolute for a fixed fee (inclusive of VAT and current Court fees). Please contact us for further details.
- High quality, professional advice from an experienced Family lawyer and a cost-effective service that allows you to move on with your life
- An end-to-end service, from initial instruction to decree absolute
- The completion and submission of all Court forms
- Correspondence with the Court and your spouse (and their adviser) in relation to the divorce
The service described applies if you are the Petitioner initiating divorce proceedings; if someone is divorcing you, the Respondent process can also be completed for a fixed fee. Please contact us for further details.
Of course divorce isn’t always simple: decisions about children, finances and property can all add up to a complex situation, and a fixed fee solution would not be appropriate; neither would it be suitable if proceedings are defended, or a cross-petition filed.
If your situation falls into the more complex category, we would of course provide you with an estimate of the likely costs before carrying out any work.
What do I do next?
Whether your divorce is going to be straightforward or complicated may not be immediately obvious, so the best thing to do is arrange an initial appointment with one of our team to review the facts and advise you accordingly.
This initial meeting will normally be charged at a reduced rate. Please note that the arrangements described above also apply for the dissolution of a civil partnership.
