How much does it cost to get divorced?

We offer fixed-fee advice. Our fixed fee uncontested divorce (Petitioner) is £650 plus VAT and the court fee of £550 (total £1,330).

How long does it take to get divorced?

This largely depends on the court timescales but on average can take nine months subject to holding over Decree Absolute until financial matters have been resolved.

How will the assets be divided?

The division of assets does depend on individual circumstances taking into consideration the factors in Section 25 of the Matrimonial Causes Act 1973, there is not one rule for all. We can provide detailed advice based upon your assets and circumstances and would recommend attending an initial fixed fee appointment to discuss this and obtain the tailored advice you need.

Is maintenance payable?

It is preferable to try to agree payment of maintenance for children on a voluntary basis using the Child Maintenance Service (CMS) guidelines. If an agreement cannot be reached, the CMS has exclusive jurisdiction in respect of maintenance for children. A CMS calculator can be found on the CMS website.

Please note spousal maintenance is separate to child maintenance and dealt with in the overall division of the assets (see above).
