||We can help you with all aspects of your divorce or separation. We will advise you on the best course of action and help you decide the next step.|
We offer high quality and cost effective advice. We recognise that that the cost of divorce cost causes anxiety for many people. Whilst we only act for privately paying clients and we try as far as possible to offer a fixed fee service. The fee reflects the relative difficulty and complexity of the work.
You may also be able to file for your divorce on your own - but you need to understand the legal position first and you may need help in drafting the petition.
We also offer legal advice at the start of your relationship, with a Cohabitation Agreement or a pre-Nuptial Agreement. Pre-Nuptial Agreements now carry weight in English Courts more and it is important to seriously consider having such an agreement if you have more assets than your partner.
These services include:
An initial meeting (in person or over the phone) with advice and guidance
Preparing your Agreement
Correspondence with you and your husband or wife’s solicitors
These services do not include:
Dealing with issues concerning children, finances or any other legal matter
Any agents or experts fees (your solicitor will identify whether these are likely to be incurred)
Any changes to court fees or the rate of VAT as set by the Government
