At Family Law Consultants our solicitors understand the importance of you being able to budget for legal expenses. The thought of going through with a divorce or ending a civil partnership might fill you with dread, but with our help, the process really does not need to be difficult. We have personal experience of divorce. From this experience, we know there is an emotional cost to you and your family and we always bear this in mind.
We are friendly and try to resolve matters for you as amicably as possible. At the same time, we aren't pushovers. If we encounter unreasonableness or a lack of cooperation from your spouse or his or her legal representatives, we will act firmly to protect your interests.
FIXED-FEE DIVORCE: HOW DOES IT WORK?
Our fixed-fee divorce is a one-to-one service where we guide you carefully through each stage of the process and represent you. Alternatively, if you would like to 'pay as you go' we also offer hourly rate charging. We will ask you about:
- The reasons you want a divorce
- Whether you have considered mediation
- How long you have lived apart from your spouse
- Proposed future living arrangements
- Current contact arrangements for children
- Details of assets, including your income, savings, pensions and those of your spouse
- Any financial concerns, including debts
- Domestic abuse
Our costs for representing a petitioner (the person seeking the divorce) and the respondent (the person who receives the divorce petition) are set out in full on our charges pages. These costs relate to uncontested divorces where no court hearing is necessary: If there is any dispute over your divorce settlement such as the financial arrangements or uncertainty over arrangements for children, you will need to instruct us separately on these issues.
Prices from £400 exc VAT.
