Fixed Fee Divorce
At Ashtons Legal we know that our clients want to have certainty about their legal costs.
If you and your partner are looking for a quick and easy way to get a divorce or civil partnership dissolution then Ashtons Legal can help:
- if you are the Applicant (the person applying for divorce)
- if you are the Respondent (your spouse is applying for divorce).
The Applicant costs are paid in two payments – one at the start and the second when the application for the Conditional Order (Decree Nisi) is sent to the court. As the Respondent, a one off payment is to be paid at the start.
The costs include all the processes necessary to complete the divorce as either the Applicant or the Respondent.
The fixed cost system can only apply on the basis that the divorce is not defended and both parties are willing to co-operate in the divorce process. In the vast majority of divorces, this service will be applicable. Any level of complexity which causes a case to fall outside of the fixed fee scheme will be negotiated on a case by case basis.
If your divorce is more complex, or becomes a defended divorce suit, then we offer a more bespoke service. Our bespoke divorce service is still very competitive and great value, it is just more tailored to your needs.
Before deciding on fee options, we will discuss with you whether the fixed fee option is both appropriate and likely to save you money.
It can seem confusing when looking for legal help, so don’t hesitate to get in touch. We will be very pleased to take your call and arrange a completely FREE initial 45 minute meeting with one of our family lawyers to discuss our fixed fee divorce and bespoke services. Our experts will talk you through the process to find the best and most effective solution for your needs.
Our fixed fee divorce service does not address children or financial issues, however, we are happy to discuss these matters with you under our bespoke service.
