The breakdown of a relationship is a traumatic experience and choosing to end your marriage can be very hard emotionally. Our family lawyers understand this, and will offer you advice to help you make the best decision. Your initial, no obligation appointment is free.

Divorce – divorcing someone

Divorce simply means ending (dissolving) your marriage. Your lawyer will prepare all necessary papers, and offer you advice and guidance throughout the divorce process. We offer an agreed fee for this work. Please note this does not include the Court’s fee, currently £550, payable when the papers are first sent to Court to be issued.

If you would like your solicitor to help with children or financial matters, we will provide a separate quotation for this before starting work.

Divorce – someone is divorcing you

We can also help if you have already received divorce papers issued by your spouse. Your lawyer will carry out all work involved with replying to the divorce, and guide you through the process.

Divorce – defending/contesting a divorce

If you wish to contest a divorce and stay married, the process is more complex and we will provide a detailed quotation for costs on request. Click the icon below for a free divorce factsheet.
