How Much Is A Divorce?

Here at Higgins Miller we specialise in family law and are used to dealing with cases which involve highly emotional topics such as children disputes, wills and probate and interactions with social services. One thing which we recognise is that for many people having to deal with an issue of this kind will involve their first proper contact with the world of the law, solicitors and potential court appearances. We know from experience that many of our clients delay legal action due to concerns about how much it is going to cost them, and it’s likely that even more stop short of taking that action altogether. We work in a way which is designed to deal with concerns of this kind, however, and that’s why we’re always happy to deal with the question ‘How much is a divorce?

The answer to the question ‘How much is a divorce?’ will vary from case to case, but we work with a system of fees which has been designed to make the issue of costs as transparent and accessible as possible. We know that Christmas is a period when people often think twice about spending money, and that’s likely to be even more of a factor than usual at the end of what has been a traumatic and unpredictable year. Because of this, many people may opt to stay trapped inside a deteriorating relationship rather than even beginning to explore the possibility of a divorce. This is not only the wrong thing for any one individual to do, it could also be wrong for their partner, stopping them from making a clean break and enjoying a new start. If there are children involved it may complicate matters but it also means that they, too, are spending their lives trapped in the midst of a failing relationship. If the question of how much is a divorce is stopping you from looking into it further, then it’s understandable but not practical in the long term, especially when talking through your options with an expert like the solicitors at Higgins Miller might actually be enough to convince you that you aren’t ready to end the relationship yet. Whichever direction our advice sends you in, and whether you work with us through the rest of your divorce or not, the worry over how much is a divorce shouldn’t stop you from exploring every option.

To make sure that it doesn’t, we offer a wide range of pricing options. Our first 20-minute appraisal will be provided free of charge and can take place in person or over the phone. If you’d like to learn more after this then we can carry out an hour-long advice meeting at the fixed fee of just £60, at the end of which you’ll be given a summary of the issues discussed to help you to decide your next steps. If you do decide to take things further the worry over the question of ‘How much is a divorce?’ won’t be an issue, because we operate a fixed fee system for either an agreed, uncontested divorce or for specific aspects of a divorce which can be chosen as needed. This means two things – you’ll know exactly what you have to pay before you instruct our expert solicitors to act for you, and you never have to worry about costs spiralling out of control. From the initial enquiry, through to applying for a divorce and gaining a decree nisi followed by a decree absolute, the question ‘How much is a divorce?’ is one which you’ll be able to answer in full, with help from our fair and transparent pricing system.
