Fixed Fees

Divorce500

If you are the party starting the divorce process and have agreed the arrangements for your children but need the reassurance of  us dealing with your divorce on your behalf. We will deal with all communications from the Court and the other party. This package does not include any complicating factors such as problems with service of the proceedings on the other party.

Included in this package:

  • A consultation with one of our specialist solicitors
  • Completion of all necessary paperwork to progress your divorce through to Decree Absolute on your behalf
  • Ongoing telephone support if required

Not included in this package:

  • court fee of £550
  • financial advice/settlement
  • advice/assistance in respect of arrangements for the children
  • additional expenses

Court fees are payable in respect of divorce proceedings, and you will need to provide us with sufficient funds at the start of your case to cover these fees in addition to our costs.

If you do not have your original marriage certificate available, we will need to apply for a certified copy to submit to the Court and there is a charge for this (currently £7.00).

If there is any doubt that your spouse has received (been served with) the divorce papers from the Court, it will be necessary to prove to the Court he/she has received them.  If this involves bailiff service and/or an enquiry agent then you will incur additional costs.  In such cases, we would advise you at the earliest opportunity of that fact and give you a best estimate of the likely costs.

Fixed fee – £500 (plus VAT)
