All the comments and testimonials below are unsolicited and much appreciated feedback, not a response to a feedback form. I don't pay to be listed on a review site and I don't pay for reviews.
Full names are witheld along with any other details which might identify a client in order to protect his/her privacy.
Please note that you must have an absolute agreement with your spouse/civil partner before a consent order can be submitted to court and both of you must sign the document. You must also disclose to each other and to the court finanical and other relevant information to enable a consent order to be made.
Nicola I confirm that the Consent Order you drafted for me has been approved by the court.
I made a couple of changes to your draft to better reflect our individual situation, primarily to Question 9 on the D81. But I was only confident enough to do the latter because of the notes you provided. I thought that I could have drafted the Consent Order myself, having experience of courts and the law through my job. However, when I received your draft and accompanying notes, I realised that this is something I could not have done. You provided an excellent service and excellent value for money. I recommend it to any other person who finds themselves in the same position in what is a difficult and harrowing time.
I am happy for you to use the above testimonial, whole or in part, in any way you think might be beneficial to you.
Thanks and best regards
Thank you. No more questions, and thanks so much for your help.
Dear Nicola I hope you are well. The court has granted the consent order I applied for. Many thanks for your assistance with this. I believe there is one final form for me to complete to apply for decree absolute? Could you please remind me what the form is and where I can get it? Many thanks again for your help. Kind regards,
Apologies for only just replying to you. Many thanks for your email below and all the documents you sent me. Mxxx and I have been through them all carefully, and we would like to thank you for how thorough you have been and how easy you have made this process. We both agree that the information that is in them is correct.
Thank you so much.
Many thanks for the excellent documentation you send. They are easy to understand and correctly reflect our consent agreement and of course in right legal language.
Thank you for the quick turnaround.
Thank you, Nicola. I really appreciate your speedy help.
Thank you so much for your immediate support in this matter. We greatly appreciate it.
Just to let you know that I am posting letter & forms to Mortgage company this morning. ...Everything on paperwork looks good.
The consent order came back approved yesterday. I just wanted to thank you very much for your help with this paperwork and for keeping cost as low as possible given my low income so I am extremely grateful! Thank you again!! If you would like me to leave a review anywhere please let me know :)
Just wanted to say thank you as consent order has come back agreed so finally moving forward. Your service was brilliant, efficient and supportive and will happily recommend you to anyone I know who may require such support.
You drafted a Consent Order for me earlier this year, and just to let you know that the Order has now been granted.
Many thanks for you help and advice when the Order was initially refused.
Your responses were very helpful.
Thank you once again.
The consent order came through yesterday from Bury St Edmunds with no requests for clarification.
It was dated 2nd December (though seems to have taken 2 weeks before they posted it).
We sent it on 9th November, meaning that they processed in about 2.5 weeks.
I just wanted to let you know that the consent order you prepared for me has been approved and sealed by Bury St Edmunds Divorce Centre last week.
Thank you for your help and I shall certainly recommend your services.
I have never met Nicola before, I only dealt with her via email. However I can honestly say I have never received such service like this before.
Initially I came to Nicola for a clean break consent order to form part of my divorce. But the courts were refusing my application for a 2 year consent divorce (after cashing the cheques and issuing it) because I apparently was short by one day. The court said I either had to reissue and pay the fees again to change the date of application by one day or change the grounds which wasn't possible. At a low, Nicola stepped in and fought my corner, not only did she offer amazing advice, and consulted with her legal contacts, but she prepared all the letters for me to send back to the court to fight that we were right. She found the case studies and helped me push it forward.
I can happily say that after Nicola's perseverance and determination she helped me get my decree nisi to be pronounced. I would highly recommend Nicola for any areas of legal support with a divorce. If it wasn't for Nicola then I'm not sure what I would have done apart from spend out hundreds of pounds reissuing when I didn't need to.
Thank you so much for your help. You truly are amazing x
Just wanted to let you know that the clean break order went through with no problems at all.
Thank you for your help with it all.
I would happily recommend your services.
I used Nicola Williams & Co Solicitors online clean break order service to submit with my Decree Nici prior to finalising my divorce proceedings.
Solicitors can be notoriously expensive and negotiating the legal jargon can be a very daunting prospect, but I found the service to be efficient, easy to use and great value for money, and would certainly recommend them to anyone hoping to save money in what can be a very expensive process.
Hi Nicola that it excellent.
All I can say is thanks ever so much for your time and trouble and it’s been a pleasure working with you and would highly recommend your services.
Hopefully the Court will not kick off about any of the papers and it will all go smoothly.
Kind regards and my very best wishes
I was just going through all the divorce papers from last year and .......
I must say that I was so impressed with your services last year and would be happy to write a testimonial.
Thanking you in anticipation.
Sent from my iPad
You have been brilliant and so quick
I have printed everything off and looks ok.. I just hope it is accepted by the courts and my wife signs on Saturday!
We negotiated this ourselves with support from family members and it took a while!
I would like to thank you for providing this service and will post something favorable to get you referrals.
I hope not to have to come back to you for more help but will feedback the outcome in due course.
With kind regards,
Just want to say how helpful and professional you've been through this process.
Awesome! Many thanks for your time! I appreciate it!
Hope you are well.
I just wanted to let you know that after the confusion over the final “absolute” forms, our Divorce went through the courts fine.
So I wanted to thank you for providing such a cost effective service!
Thank you very much for your email and for the confirmation that the pension sharing annex has been agreed by Aviva. I will send everything off tomorrow.
I confirm that I have noted the Form A change.
Thank you for making this all so easy. Excellent service and a great price. I have experienced some terrible service, questionable behaviour and extortionate prices from two that we used earlier in the process so I would be very happy to share the positive experience that I have had with you. Please let me know if there are any particular review sites or places that would be best.
Just a quick note to say a further thank you because we received the sealed consent order without any problems and I sent off for the decree absolute today, I am almost free from this nightmare and I owe a lot to you for your speedy no hassle service, thank you.
That’s great Nicola.
Thanks for all your help with this – your input has certainly made things easier to get on with.
Consent order all approved.
Thank your for your help and guidance, much appreciated
Thank you for all your help you have been absolutely brilliant what a first class service. I have now sent all the documents to the court, I will be in contact if there is any further work to be done.
Once again thank you for relieving the stress off my family, something other solicitors should learn from.
That is great news.
Thank you Nicola for all your help.
Consent order all approved.
Thank your for your help and guidance, much appreciated
Many Thanks Nicola,
You've been wonderful throughout this whole process.
I just wanted to say thank you for your efficient and professional service in producing the consent order.
The court has since approved the order.
Thanks you once again
Forms look fine and I am happy I can complete the D81 without assistance.
I have been extremely happy with your service and I will recommend you and complete a testimonial on your site once I have the consent from the courts.
Thank you so much, I look forward to the returned documents and covering letter.
When I arrived back home after spending Christmas with the family I had a letter from the court.
It's very short but the last part reads "It is ordered that the consent order has been approved as drafted". There is a copy of the consent order included completed by the court and stamped.
I take it that means it is completed and all that is left is for me to apply for the decree absolute in early January.
Thank you very much for all your hard work getting this order drawn up so that it was accepted by the court.
Enjoy the rest of the festive period and have a very Happy New Year.
Perfect – thank you for the fast response.
Thank you so much Nicola.
Amazingly speedy service.
I hope you are well today. Thanks very much for preparing the order for us, and for looking over the D81, I didn’t think that i’d filled it all in properly and thought there were some boxes that i’d missed that perhaps needed filling in, but I really appreciate the fact that you’ve looked over it and not charged me.
Thank you for all of your help with this, I appreciate it very much. This process is difficult enough so it is great that someone like yourself offers such a good service.
Good news. We went to the Hearing today and explained the breakdowns and she was happy to approve the Consent Order while we were there. I think the confusion was on the Statement of facts which showed the assets before the Consent Order, so it didn't take too long to explain.
Thank you so much for your help and I have been so pleased that we were able to get this sorted without letter going backwards and forwards between different solicitors.
Please can you let me know where I can leave a review for you as I really want to spread the word.
Just a quick note to thank you for your valued assistance in helping me conclude my divorce. I am pleased to say the court agreed the terms as submitted without question and my decree absolute was accordingly granted.
Once again many thanks for your thorough and speedy service.
Thank you so much for your help and for explaining this in a very clear manner.
I just wanted to let you know that the Consent Order was approved last week and was accepted on first application.
The instructions you gave were really easy to follow and the additional advice and accompanying letter you wrote I think made all of the difference.
The fact that you charge so little but still offered such a personal and responsive service, puts many divorce services to shame. My ex-husband and I have remained amicable and we can now focus our energies on our children and co-parenting.
It is such a relief and I am so glad that I found your details on the internet, although I hope I never have to recommend you to any of my friends, I would do so without any hesitation.
Thank you again.
thank you again for the very helpful conversation this morning. It was very important for us to get a second perspective and you have been able to sharpen our understanding of the issues.
I have received the financial settlement from my ex-Husbands solicitor today.
I would like to thank you for all your assistance and advice during this difficult time.
To advise, the consent order you prepared for me has been approved by the court.
I would like to thank you for your guidance and support with this.
My sincere thanks for your help with my recent divorce proceedings.
I submitted the consent order by post on Sunday last week and received a letter confirming Absolute on Friday morning!
I assume I will receive a validated copy of the consent order from the court in due course. I have also completed the transfer of property to ...... so I guess that now completes the journey.
Thank you once again. If you would like some words to use as positive feedback on your services please let me know.
Thank you Nicola.
......... I feel a certain sense of empowerment over my own destiny (if that makes sense), and I have come a long way from the weak shell shocked person I was when I first came to see you.
Many thanks. I guess working from home means you never stop! Thank you for quick response.
I hope you enjoy the rest of your evening.
This is what keeps me believing "life is good"
Many thanks for all your help,
Brilliant, thank you so much for your help.
Many thanks for all your help and advice throughout this, its much appreciated.
This is just a quick note of thanks for your help.
The consent order was dropped off at the court and was signed off by them, along with the Absolute, without any form of problem.
We are now both free to continue our lives from where we left off without the fear of future problems. Once again, thank you for your help!
Thank you very much for providing me with the clean break consent order.
I am happy to confirm that this was approved with no extra fuss involved.
Thank you again for what you did.
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate this.
I just wanted to let you know that the consent order was approved and I received the decree absolute the other week.
I just have the house transfer to sort out.
Many thanks for all your support in this matter.
All the best
Thank you Nicola
You helped me through a very difficult part of my life.
It feels like saying goodbye to a friend now!
Perhaps we could meet up for a coffee at some point, if you wished.
Thank you for all your help.
Thanks very much for your help.
Thank you again for all your hard work and support.
I am just waiting for the loan from the building society which should be in my account in the next few days and then i can finally move on.
Just to let you know that the application for a consent order was returned by the judge last Friday marked 'approved as drafted'. So thank you very much for your assistance in bringing this matter to a close.
I’m very pleased (and relieved) to say that I received in the post yesterday direct from the court confirmation that the consent order has been approved and sealed.
I’d like to thank you very much indeed for your help with this.
All the very best
Thanks very much for everything you’ve done to help with the (witheld), I think it made a huge difference to the outcome. Also the last 2 years, which seemed like it would never end at times, but got there in the end!
All the best,
Just to let you know .... although stressful I felt the day went well and the judge seemed very pleasant.
I will let you know the outcome and I thank you so much for your assistance. I could not have done this by myself.
Just thought I would let you know I successfully obtained my Consent Order from O***** County Court.
Your forms and instructions were clear and concise and I got all this completed with no problems. (The worst part was getting the information from my pension – 6 weeks it took them to give the CETV – ridiculous).
Anyway, my ex husband signed everything, the Courts approved this – and I’m much happier now I have obtained this documentation.
Thanks very much for your help. This also saved me in the region of £950.
Good morning Nicola.
It was good to finally meet you yesterday.
Thank you for the advice, it will hopefuly help stem any ill feelings to develop between myself and (name witheld)
Thanks for all your invaluable help and support through the difficult process.
I don't think I'd be as far on or in the position I am now without it all.
The consent order has been approved and the final hearing has been set aside.
I would like to thank you for a excellent service through what has been an incredibly tough three years.
Many thanks for all your support.
I would be really happy to provide feedback for your services so please let me know how i can do this.
The funds have now been transferred to my account.
Thanks for all your support over the last year.
Thank you so much for all your help.
I have been really impressed with your service and would have no hesitation in recommending you to others.
You have helped me to move forward from a place where I had been stuck for some time.
Words can't express how grateful I am for that.
You are a god send. Thank you so much.
Once I have the updated document I am going to give it all to my ex to read and hopefully sign.
Then I'll be sending it all off to the court.
I will let you know how it all goes and if I need anymore help.
I have to thank you so much for helping me with this, your service has been really professional and well managed.
After looking at your website and having a conversation with you I purchased a DIY Clean break consent order which was approved by ______ county court.
I just wanted to say how impressed I have been with your website, honest straightforward advice and service.
I got what we needed for £105 in total when solicitors locally said it would cost £600 to £800 for far more than we needed.
I would definitely recommend you.
I hope you are well.
I came to see you last month in regards to my divorce and financial settlement.
I can't thank you enough for the excellent advice you gave me. We have agreed a settlement in mediation this week..........
Thanks so much for all your help, it helped me so much in 5 stressful hours of mediation to stand my ground.
Good evening Ms Williams,
My heartfelt gratitude for the most welcome news we have had in many years, I can't begin to explain the relief to be rid of this awful episode in our lives.........Again, I can't, in a mail, be more expressive than to say thank you, from the both of us.
my most sincere regards
I just wanted to say to both you and Dan, you have both been so supportive and helped me during my divorce.
I want to thank you both very much. If in the future I get the opportunity, I will certainly recommend yourselves if anyone needs a good solicitor.
We would like to thank you for carrying out our mediation, both C....... and I found you very empathic to our situation and have valued your services, hopefully none of our friends or family find themselves in a similar position to us, however if they did I would certainly not hesitate to recommend your firm to them.
Thanks Nicola - I will forward anything and everything as I receive it.
Personally happy with the outcome - it will give me enough to get by on and that is all I ever really wanted from it.
My thanks again for all your assistance to date.
Thanks very much for the long e-mail you sent yesterday, and for sorting everything out for me. Thanks also for the statement received today. As you suggest I will cancel the standing order.
Hoorah,I am finally divorced.
I firstly want to thank you and Daniel for all your effort in dealing with this on my behalf.
