Despite popular belief, most divorces are dealt with by the courts on a ‘stand alone’ basis.
All matters relating to children, finances and property are handled separately and are not part of the qualifying criteria for the granting of a divorce. Courts can only ratify any financial agreement reached by the parties once Decree Nisi has been pronounced.
In the vast majority of cases, divorces proceed on an uncontested basis with Petitioner and Respondent agreeing to divorce. This means that most people can take advantage of our guaranteed fixed cost services which offers a divorce from £160 plus VAT and Court fees. There are no hidden ‘extras’.
Please remember that wherever possible, by far the best way to deal with matrimonial finances, property and children is to come to an amicable agreement with your spouse. This will save you time and money.
This is the simplest and most cost effective way to end your marriage or civil partnership where both of you agree. It provides the personal reassurance and support of a solicitor.
