What is a Fixed Fee Divorce?
A Fixed Fee Divorce is an easier and quicker way of getting divorced. It only covers uncontested divorces when a partner does not dispute the divorce so is perfect for couples who are already separated and agree on a divorce. The fee doesn’t include the negotiation of financial or contact matters, so it’s important to remember this when beginning the process.
What are the benefits?
Fixed Fee Divorces offer a much quicker process than a traditional divorce. As it’s only for couples who are not contesting the divorce, the whole process can take as little as 4-6 months.
You also know exactly how much is needed to be paid to your solicitor from the start, so there are no nasty surprises further down the line. This allows you to budget for your legal advice and set your own price cap, so you don’t go overboard.
There is a major benefit of using a solicitor instead of an ‘easy divorce’ website – you get contact hours with a legal professional who will personally advise you on your case and help to ensure that you and your partner get a fair share of assets. This also allows you to get expert advice from someone who has dealt with a wide range of divorce cases.
At Hill and Company, we have an expert family law team who provide a personal and professional service to support both your emotional and legal needs during this difficult time.
How much does it cost?
At Hill and Company, our Fixed Fee Divorce service costs £600 + VAT, and the cost of any court fees (usually £550). With this price, you will get your own solicitor who is managing your case, and they will handle everything, from the instruction to the finalising of the divorce.
