The court will require you to pay a standard government court issue fee of £550.00 and is payable directly to to the court prior to the court issuing you divorce petition.
If you are on a low income you may not have to pay £550 Court fees, your legal adviser will review this opportunity with you.
We will obtain the information we need from you and give you the divorce procedure explanation. Then we will help you prepare and file all the appropriate paperwork as follows for a quick and fast divorce.
A form called a ‘Divorce Petition’ is completed by us after we have reviewed your draft and discussed with you the grounds upon which you can apply for a divorce e.g. you and your spouse have lived apart for two years and your spouse consents to a divorce. The Divorce Petition will then be prepared and sent to the court mentioning those grounds.
The approved divorce petition is then issued by the court and a copy sent (also known as served) by the court to your spouse unless they need to be served on your spouse another way.
Your spouse should then fill in an acknowledgement of service form ( aka D10 form) indicating whether they accept that the divorce should be granted or not. Once the court has received this form back from your spouse a copy will be sent to you. We will then help you prepare a document called ‘an application for decree nisi’ which then needs to be sent to the court. This document is usually supported by a statement in support which we can also help you prepare.
The District Judge at the court then checks all the paperwork to establish that you have proved your grounds for a divorce. If this is the case the court will then write back to you giving you a date when decree nisi of divorce will be pronounced.
Six weeks and one day later, provided there were no problems, we will then help you make an application to the court for your Decree Absolute which is the document proving your marriage is at an end (also known as dissolved).
It could be about your home, overseas properties, pensions, family companies, children. From valuing assets to arriving at a financial settlement, we can help.

If your divorce finances go to court, we work with some of the best barristers in family law at agreed prices. It doesn’t matter where you live in the country, we know someone within reach.
Each fee will be on a case by case basis depending on the issues, the complexities involved, volume of paper work and the length of the case.
In most cases the above follows through without difficulty. In some cases there can be additional issues to be resolved and we do charge extra for this additional work, examples can be: sorting out a financial agreement, advice on contact to children, not being able to trace the other party, the other party denying receipt of the papers, needing to obtain a private detective and so on. Any extra costs will be discussed and agreed with you before any work is undertaken.
An example of an extra cost is e.g. you not having the original marriage certificate in which case we will then need to obtain a certified copy of your marriage certificate. Without this your Divorce Petition will not be accepted by the Court for issuing.
