Divorce is the legal dissolution or termination of a marriage. It can be enormously stressful and emotional and although you need to look after yourself on a personal level, it’s also important to understand what the legal process is and what’s best for you.
Our specialist divorce solicitors are members of Resolution http://www.resolution.org.uk which looks to guide you through your divorce in a non-confrontational way, advising what your options are, whilst taking care of the necessary paperwork. These are some of the questions you may have about getting divorced.
How much will it cost?
For undefended proceedings we charge £575 + vat and disbursements if you’re the person filing the divorce (the petitioner). The mandatory disbursement for the petitioner is the court fee which is currently £550, but you might be exempt from paying this if you’re on a low income. If you’re the respondent (the person being served with the divorce) it’s £300 + vat.
