    We offer a range of fixed fee divorce and separation options

    With a dedicated Family Law team, we are able to provide in many circumstances a fixed fee divorce and dissolution of partnership service for both the Applicant and Respondent.

    In addition, following a divorce when financial arrangements have been agreed upon either in person or in Alternative Dispute Resolution, we can provide a fixed fee service to draft and submit a Financial Remedy Consent Order Application.

    Looking after your needs

    We’ll arrange for you to have an initial phone consultation with a divorce solicitor, to provide you with legal advice and enable us to get the information we need to start the divorce process/dissolution of partnership.

    Using the information you provide, we prepare the necessary court documents and process the divorce/dissolution for you from start to finish, and we will keep you fully updated every step of the way. You will pay a fixed fee for this service, and we provide all the professional and emotional support you will need, just as we always do.

    If there are financial or children matters to resolve then these would need to be dealt with separately from the fixed fee arrangement and we would be more than happy to discuss these matters with you.

    Specialist family law accreditations

    We have individuals on our team who have earned The Law Society’s Family Law accreditation. This means they have shown a high level of competence and extensive knowledge in family law matters. Some of our solicitors also hold The Law Society’s Children Law accreditation, so they have the ability to work directly with children and understand their needs and wishes.

    Fixed Fee Divorce & Separation FAQs

    • What is a fixed fee divorce?

      A fixed fee divorce works in the same way as any other divorce work done by a divorce solicitor, but the fee you pay for the divorce is fixed upfront. It can be used for all divorces, and whilst some are complex emotionally, the process itself is rather simple.

    • Who pays for divorce fees?

      The Petitioner is responsible for covering the cost of the preparation and submission of the divorce paperwork, together with obtaining legal advice and paying the Court fees. The Respondent will only be responsible for covering their own legal fees.

    • Is it worth getting a solicitor for divorce?

      It’s a good idea to get specialist legal advice before you start your divorce or separation. A solicitor can: speak to your partner and their solicitor so you don’t have to and represent you in court – this means they’ll talk for you so you don’t have to.

    • Can I divorce without a solicitor?

      If you’ve both agreed to end your relationship and your finances are straightforward, your divorce could be relatively quick and cheap. You will still need to go through the legal process, but you might not need a solicitor throughout., although it is always advised to seek specialist legal advice.

    • Do both parties need a solicitor for divorce?

      There are no legal obligations for either party to use a solicitor for a divorce, however, in divorces that involve matrimonial assets, child arrangements, and more, both parties will often have their own divorce lawyer.

    • Does it matter who files for divorce first?

      It generally doesn’t matter who starts the divorce process, and you’re able to do so jointly if you wish.

    • Who do you need to notify when you get divorced?

      It may not be at the top of your mind, but there are a number of organisations you will need to inform about your divorce:

      • Banks
      • Mortgage Provider
      • HMRC
      • Local Council
      • Utilities
      • Insurance Companies
      • DVLA
      • Passport Offices

      This is not an exhaustive list for every case. Speak to our Family Law solicitors today for advice on your divorce.
