Expert Fixed Fee Divorce

A divorce can bring some financial uncertainties. That is why having clarity on the costs might make it less complicated.

At Perduco Law, we have chosen a fixed fee pricing structure for divorce to help you understand the budget of your divorce case from the very beginning.

We believe that using our fixed fee pricing structure safeguards you from the mounting hourly fees that a traditional legal firm may surprise you with. Without compromising the professional support, legal advice and guidance you require.

What do I need in order to be divorced in England or Wales?

To be divorced in England or Wales, you need to have been married for at least one year before the divorce proceedings can be started. The marriage does not have to have taken place in England or Wales.

In order to obtain a divorce in England and Wales, you must also spend most of your time or have the majority of your life interests in England or Wales.

In order to obtain your divorce, you are also required to submit an image of your marriage certificate and the court fee of £593.

What are the grounds for divorce?

The only ground for divorce that you can list on the divorce application is that the marriage has irretrievably broken down. 

If you feel that this is the case, you can apply for a divorce.     

Is it difficult to get divorce?

Divorce is no longer the challenging procedure that it was in the past. Although divorces are granted more readily today, the process can nevertheless become a time-consuming one.

A correct application requires a significant amount of paperwork and administration to assure its success, and the entire process can take 18 to 20 weeks to complete.

It is in our management of your divorce case that the full benefit of our fixed-fee system can be seen at its most effective. Despite the somewhat open-ended timeline of a typical divorce, the cost of your case will never exceed the budget you initially agreed upon.

Coupled with the peerless attention to detail, and the level of experience and expertise that we assign to every case, it is easy to see why we surpass our competitors when it comes to client satisfaction.

What will my Solicitor do on my behalf?

Essentially, your solicitor will do everything involving both the divorce and financial settlement on your behalf, including

Advising you on your legal position and the best way forward.
Drafting all legal documentation
Liaising with the court and your ex-partner or their legal representative
Finalising your divorce and financial settlement

What will I have to do?

You will need to approve the documentation before it’s sent out and provide us with instructions following our advice.

You may also need to provide us with supporting documents such as marriage certificates and financial disclosure documents, e.g., bank and mortgage statements.

What does fixed fee mean?

Fixed Fees means that we tell you your exact costs before you instruct us and detail the work we are going to do for that fixed fee. This enables you to know your costs in advance with no nasty surprises.

What's the difference between fixed fees and hourly rates?

Nearly all family law firms charge on an hourly rate structure, which means everything they do on your case, whether it’s progressing your case or not, is chargeable in 6 minute units, so with hourly rates of £200-£450 per hour, these costs can quickly become disproportionate.
