What is an Uncontested Divorce (if you are divorcing someone)?
An Uncontested Divorce is where both you and your spouse have agreed to a divorce in an undisputed manner whereby neither party objects to the divorce, the grounds for the divorce, or any application for costs.

What is not included in the fixed fee?
In most cases the above process is completed without difficulty. However, should any work need to be carried out on your behalf that is not included in the fixed fee, this can be undertaken at our normal hourly rate but we will discuss and agree the costs with you beforehand.
How much does it cost?
Our fee is £1500 including the Court Fee* and VAT.
TOTAL COST £1500 inclusive
We would also hope to secure a contribution towards your costs from the other party.
