Fixed Fee Divorce Solicitor in Bath

Fixed Fee Divorce £500 inc VAT

Who is this for?

If you are starting a divorce against your partner, we will manage every step of the divorce for a fixed fee. If your partner starts the divorce, we can offer a similar fixed fee divorce service.

This fixed fee divorce, or 'fixed price' divorce is only available where the divorce is not contested by one or both partners, and does not cover advice regarding property, finances, children or domestic violence. If your divorce is contested or does include property, finances, children or domestic violence we can still provide a fixed fee divorce service, but will need to speak with you first to establish your circumstance and give you a fixed price for your situation.

We would emphasise that the fixed fee covers the cost of drafting one petition only and if you change your mind about the ground for the divorce then there will be an additional charge for this work. In addition although we appreciate that divorce is a very serious matter and must not be undertaken lightly nevertheless the fixed fee only applies to divorces which are conducted expeditiously. Therefore we regret that if the divorce petition and documents are not sent to court within 3 calendar months of our receiving your initial instructions the fixed fee will not apply and we reserve the right to charge for all work done by reference to the time spent.

Included:

  • A 30-minute initial face-to-face interview
  • Drafting the divorce papers
  • Starting the process at court
  • Applying for the divorce decree
  • Keeping you advised on progress at every stage

Not included:

  • Any disbursements such as court fees. The court charges £550 but you may be exempt from paying the fee or eligible for a reduced fee. We can advise on this.
  • Arrangements of personal service such as bailiffs or process servers.
  • Attendance at any court hearings. We can arrange this for an extra fee
  • Dealing with court requests for medical evidence.
  • Additional face-to-face interview time in excess of the initial 30 minutes.

Any requests for advice or help on these issues, or additional face-to-face interviews, will be charged at our normal hourly rates.
