Divorce (or civil partnerships dissolution)

The breakdown of a relationship or marriage is an emotional and stressful time. It is an unfortunate fact of life that not all marriages are successful. Our specialist solicitors can provide advice on divorce and separation in a clear and sensitive manner. We also recognise that the cultural and religious implications of a divorce need to be considered from the outset so we will spend time with you to understand the issues and advise you on the best course of action for your circumstances.

We understand that trying to assess the impact of your separation upon your children, your future, pensions, finances, property and sometimes a business is a difficult one. We are able to advise you on the range of options available to you and to consider with you the benefits of a particular course of action. Listening to you is always a key to our approach because every case is different. Rest assured, our aim is not to steer you into divorce proceedings prematurely, but to guide you through the decision making progress at your pace. We are used to helping both husbands and wives in divorce, separation and nullity.

Our fixed fee divorce for undefended divorce is £750.00 plus VAT plus disbursement such as court fee. Fixed fee divorce is designed to provide a cost-effective means of securing a divorce with the knowledge that throughout the process you are receiving expert advice with peace of mind about the costs. Our aim is to help you understand the Court process, what we do for you and the costs involved.

Our fixed fee divorce covers the preparation and issue of the Divorce Petition and all the steps that need to be taken to obtain the Decree Absolute in divorce proceedings which are not contested and the parties are agreeable to divorce and they conclude the matter promptly.

If your divorce proceedings become more complex, for example, if your husband or wife defends the proceedings or files their own Divorce Petition, we will notify you of this and give you an estimate of the likely increase in fees including outlining the additional work that will need to be undertaken.
