We can act for you in divorce or dissolution proceedings for a fixed fee. You will know exactly how much you will have to pay.
N.B. You may be entitled to fee remission so that you do not have to pay all or some of the court fees
What work do we do for the fixed fee?
1. The first payment by you gives you a fixed fee consultation with us.
2. We will write to you and the other side or their solicitors about the divorce.
3. We will draft the divorce or dissolution documentation:
4. Checking Court papers:
What work is not included in the fixed fee?
What if I decide not to go ahead with the divorce or dissolution?
In those circumstances we would charge you for all work and disbursements incurred until that point on a stage basis as per the details below. Your bill for the divorce or dissolution will not be more than the fixed fee and may be less than the total fixed fee.
What if my spouse or civil partner is ordered to pay my costs?
If your spouse or civil partner complies with any order for costs, any costs recovered and paid to us will be deducted from the fixed fee payable to us. If it is necessary for us to carry out work to enforce an order for costs against your spouse or civil partner, this is not covered by the fixed fee and we will have to agree a sum with you to cover the costs of the additional work.
What if there is a dispute about property, finances, domestic violence or children?
Hadaway & Hadaway has a very experienced team of solicitors who regularly handle disputes in family matters. Fixed fees will be offered to you for each piece of work, so that our costs are transparent and the stages that you will be billed are known by you in advance.
Please note that even if you and your spouse agree between you the terms of a financial arrangement, we will need to prepare documentation leading to either a Consent Order or a Deed of Separation in appropriate and binding terms. We can also do so on a fixed fee basis.
Additional costs may be incurred if we need to do any conveyancing work but this can be done on a fixed fee basis agreed between our property department and you before any work is carried out.
