Fixed Fee Divorce

Our Fixed Fee Divorce Service

Prince Family Law offers practical support for a non-contested divorce and can tailor a fixed fee divorce package to suit your needs.

Thinking of getting Divorced?

Once you have been married for one year our divorce solicitors can help you pursue a divorce. The sole ground for divorce is that your marriage has irretrievably broken down and the facts that can be relied on are:-
  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable Behaviour
  • Two Years’ Separation by consent
  • Five Years’ Separation
  • Desertion
  Regrettably, the concept of no-fault divorce has not yet found itself to this country. Our expert team of divorce solicitors can assist you in adopting the right approach in the least confrontational manner.

What is included in our fixed fee divorce package?

The fee includes the entire process from preparation of the Divorce Petition to the obtaining of Decree Absolute which brings the marriage to an end. The fixed fee includes an initial meeting with one of our specialist Family Law team to enable us to take your instructions. The first meeting normally lasts up to 30 minutes.

What’s not included in this service?

The cost of having a foreign marriage certificate translated. The cost of obtaining a replacement marriage certificate. Advice on financial provision. Advice on children. If your spouse defends the divorce and/or cross petitions. The costs of any difficulties with service of documents including the fee(s)for an enquiry agent. Disputes concerning Costs Orders For work outside the scope of the fixed fee, contact the member of our Family Law team conducting your case. We will provide you with a cost estimate before any further work is commenced.

How much will this service cost?

For the petitioner (the person making the application) our fixed fee divorce service costs are £1,150 including vat and £550 court fee. For the respondent (the person responding to an application) our fixed fee divorce service costs are £240 including vat. In certain circumstances, you may be entitled to a full or partial fee exemption of the fees paid to the Court.

Are you in a Civil Partnership?

Prior to same-sex marriage becoming legal in England in March 2014 same-sex couples could enter into a Civil Partnership. Expert legal advice is required to bring to an end a Civil Partnership as the process is the same as for divorce. Our experienced divorce lawyers do not underestimate the difficulty in deciding to end a Civil Partnership and it is important for you to know your rights in relation to financial matters and children when reaching that decision.  

How do you start the process?
