We charge £200 plus VAT if you are not the one initiating the divorce.

There’s less paperwork if you are the respondent, but you’ll still need legal support, especially if you and your spouse are arguing over who should pay the costs.

Although rare, contested or defended divorce cases are often fraught with emotion and protracted over a long period of time. Contested divorces are also considerably more expensive with no guarantee as to the outcome.

Generally in any divorce or family law case negotiation and communication is key, between the parties involved, and the lawyers.

Our charges are based on the seniority of the lawyer dealing with your case and range from £100 -£220 per hour.
