The current Court fee for filing your divorce petition is £550, which includes the fee for applying for the decree absolute. If you have low income or you are in receipt of some benefits, you may be able to apply to the Court for the fee to be reduced or even cancelled altogether.

In addition, there will also be the cost of any legal advice sought from a solicitor. In some cases, your spouse could be ordered to pay some or all of the cost of the divorce.

For information on our fees, please get in touch with a member of our Family Law team on 0800 024 1976 or via our online form.
