Peace of mind on divorce costs
Our online divorce services provide everything you need for an uncontested divorce but allows you to save money, while still having the reassurance of support from a specialist divorce lawyer.
The vast majority of divorces are uncontested but you won’t know this for sure until your spouse has responded to the divorce petition. In the unlikely event that your divorce does become contested:
- You will need specialist legal advice from a divorce solicitor, which we offer at an hourly rate
- All of the fee you have paid for the online service will be credited against the cost of further legal advice
If you are having marriage problems, but are not yet sure that you want a divorce:
- We offer two fixed fee appointment options depending on the level of advice you require. For both options, one of our specialist divorce lawyers will meet you and give you a full assessment of your case. They will explain what your legal rights and options are, as well as what it may cost to take further legal advice. This is charged at £200 + VAT or £150 + VAT if you are meeting with one of our paralegals.
After your divorce is finalised, you can deal with all outstanding financial, family and personal issues. In most cases you will need legal advice to make sure your interests are protected – even if you have reached an agreement with your spouse – so contact us to discuss how our solicitors in Derby, Leicester and Nottingham can help you.
