Our fixed fee uncontested divorce is if you want:
An uncontested divorce is one where you and your spouse have agreed to obtain a divorce. It assumes that the other party does not formally object to the divorce and that the court accepts the grounds for divorce without question (which is normally the case).Your lawyer will collect all the relevant details from you, correspond on your behalf with the other parties involved (your spouse and their solicitor, if appropriate) and prepare and file all the relevant papers with the court to obtain a divorce.
All costs associated with obtaining a divorce.
Our fees: £725.00
VAT on our fees: £145
Court fees: £550 (to issue the petition) + £45 (decree absolute/final order)
You will be provided with email, and telephone contact with your lawyer
Your lawyer will obtain the information we need from you. They will prepare and file all the appropriate paperwork as follows:
Throughout the process your lawyer will keep you informed of progress. In addition to the completion and filing of all the paperwork we include an allowance for up to 2 hours discussion with you by phone, email or in person to address any concerns or issues arising from the paperwork. In the vast majority of cases this is more than sufficient to deal with the divorce process.
The divorce court will require you to pay standard government fees. These are currently £550 payable when the petition is filed (to issue the application) + £45 (decree absolute/final order). This is included in our total cost for a fixed fee divorce.
In most cases the above follows through without difficulty. In some cases there can be additional issues to be resolved and we do charge extra for this additional work, examples can be: sorting out a financial agreement, advice on contact to children, not being able to trace the other party, the other party denying receipt of the papers, needing to obtain a private detective and so on.
If you decide to apply for an order to have your spouse pay the costs you have incurred in obtaining the divorce additional work may be required and your lawyer will explain the cost to you. In some instances you may be required to attend court to address this aspect of your case.
If you need advice on reaching a financial settlement with your partner or arrangements for your children this is likely to involve additional work which your lawyer will explain.
Any extra work and costs will be discussed and agreed with you before any work is undertaken.
By paying a fixed fee at the start of your case you have certainty about the costs involved. The alternative is to pay an hourly rate for the time your lawyer spends on your case. We believe you should pay for the paperwork that needs to be done rather than the time it takes to do it.
