We understand that the costs of a divorce can be daunting. At Hodders Law, we have fixed fee options that can meet your budget and legal needs.

 

Option 1 – Fully represented application for divorce (non-contested)

If you wish to apply for a divorce, and to obtain legal advice and representation which deals with the divorce at every stage, this fixed fee divorce package enables you to be fully represented by a qualified solicitor throughout your non-contested divorce for a one-off fixed payment.

The package includes:

  • An initial one hour meeting with a solicitor to take your instructions on your divorce
  • We will prepare the relevant divorce forms on your behalf and submit these to the Court

In some cases, it not possible to progress the divorce due to unusual aspects, such as being unable to trace your spouse, or your spouse not acknowledging receipt of the divorce papers. In these cases, we would advise you of the costs involved with pursuing this.

If you need advice on reaching a financial settlement with your spouse or advice on arrangements for your children this will involve additional work which we will explain to you and we will then, provide you with a separate estimate of costs for this.

Our Testimonials

“Dear Karen,

Thank you very much indeed for all that you, William Brown, and your support team at Hodders have done in connection with this purchase, and with the associated sale of Wallers Haven Barn. There were many times when I thought that we were not going to make one or the other, and it is in very large part down to your persistence that we are exchanged. Your care, patience and attention to detail have been much appreciated.
