Service for petitioners/applicants in divorce/civil partnership dissolution

The divorce/dissolution service fee includes:


  1. preparation of all the documents you need to progress an uncontested divorce/dissolution to decree absolute/final order;
  2. help filing it all at court.

I charge lower rates for separation based divorce/dissolution because these petitions tend to be more straightforward.

Please not that adultery is not available for dissolution.



Reason for the divorce/dissolution My fee Court Fee Total Cost
       
Two years' separation with both parties' consent £180 £550 £730
Five years' separation £180 £550 £730
Adultery (must be admitted) £360 £550 £910
Unreasonable behaviour (must be undefended) £360 £550 £910
Desertion (must be undefended) £360 £550 £910

Please note that the court service fee of £550 is entirely separate from my fee. It is not paid to me.

It is paid to HMCTS by you when you issue the proceedings.

 

Financial Agreements on divorce

You will need to enter into a financial agreement with your spouse/civil partner if you have any assets.

There are separate fees for this

You can find out more about these agreements (known as consent orders) here

 

Service for respondents

The fee includes:

  3. discussing the implications of consenting to a divorce based upon 2 years separation;
  4. preparation of the acknowledgement of service;
  5. help filing it at court.

DIY divorce

If you prefer not to use a solicitor to complete the paperwork for your divorce/dissolution you may download copies of the standard forms from the court service website. You will still pay the court issue fee of £550 unless you are entitled to pay a reduced fee. You will need to ask the court to assess whether you are eligible for this.

Even if you deal with your own divorce without assistance from me I will be happy to assist you with formalising your financial agreement with a consent order.

Please contact me using the form below for more details on how to do this.
