Bendall & Sons offer a fixed fee divorce service.
The cost of our fixed fee divorce service depends on whether you are:
Our fixed fee is £600 + Vat (£720.00). In addition there will be a petition court fee to pay of £593 (depending on your financial circumstances).
It may be possible to recover some or all of the costs back from your spouse.
We usually ask that clients pay their fixed fee upfront yet appreciate that some clients would find this difficult and so are always willing to explore instalment options where needed. We believe that it is helpful for our clients to know at the outset what the divorce process will cost and when they will need to make the payments.
Our fixed fee divorce includes all steps from initial instruction through to obtaining the Decree Absolute, which finalises the divorce.
Benefits of our Service
What work is covered?
What work is not covered?
These services can be provided, if needed, but are not included within the fixed fee above.
We do not offer a fixed fee for divorce were we represent a respondent. This is generally because there tends to be less to do and we charge on a time-spent basis at the rate of £240 + Vat per hour.
Fees indicated on this page relate purely to the divorce process itself. Any additional work to assist with resolution of finances or children related issues will also be outside the fixed fee. We would provide full cost estimates before commencing any work for you.
Please also note that from April 2013 the scope of Legal Aid no longer includes Divorce unless there is domestic violence involved. If you believe that you may be eligible for Legal Aid, please discuss this with us when arranging your initial meeting.
