Ending your marriage
Our divorce solicitors we understand that every client is an individual who presents with unique needs and requirements. At this time you will no doubt be seeking sound advice, both legal and practical from divorce lawyers you can trust.
There is then a mandatory waiting period before you can ask the court to finalise your divorce, after which the Court will grant a "decree absolute." Until you receive the “decree absolute” your divorce is not finalised and you cannot remarry. In the vast majority of cases, this process does not require personal attendance at Court. It is only where your former spouse objects to the divorce that there may be a hearing to determine whether your marriage should end. This is however very rare since it is extremely difficult to contest a divorce.
- Getting divorced in itself does not mean that all financial issues are resolved with your former spouse. They can forward financial claims even after the divorce.
- If you have children, then you will need to tell the Court what arrangements you have made about their living arrangements as part of the divorce process.
- speaking to us is not binding
- In most cases we charge a fixed fee of £450.00 plus VAT and the Court fees to undertake the work to complete your divorce. Sometimes there may be additional work to do before your divorce can be finalised and we will wherever possible give you a fixed price quotation in advance for any additional costs.
Expert legal assistance from our divorce solicitors
Our divorce solicitors recognise that every client presents with different needs. Some separations and divorces are relatively amicable with clients agreeing how they will divide everything they once owned as a couple. In other cases there may be difficult negotiations involving high value assets such as the former matrimonial home or how to divide pension funds.
Regardless of the circumstances, the support that you can get from our team of consultants, divorce solicitors and barristers will allow you to get through this stage of your life with the best possible outcome.
