How much does it cost to get a divorce if both parties agree?
When you divorce, it is important to also deal with the financial aspect of your relationship to draw a line beneath your relationship. If it is not dealt with, your ex potentially is able to come back many years in the future to make a claim against you.
When you both agree, the process is reasonably straightforward, and is essentially as below:
- You draw up a list of what each of you is going to have.
- Send that list to us and we will prepare an order for the court which make it official
- You will fill out another form listing your assets for the court.
- You send the form and order to the court.
The document sent to the court to be turned into a legally binding order is called a Consent Order.
The first thing to do is to book a consultation with Simon Walland to discuss how the court would divide your assets so that you can consider whether the arrangement that you have decided to agree on is far. You can then decide whether you should even continue to have a Consent Order and if it is right for you. You may feel that an ‘OK’ Consent Order is better than going to court and facing the uncertainty of what might happen. Often, the court process is often out of your control as well as being to many people a daunting experience. There is a balance which you at least need to understand before making a decision. (The decision is yours to make)
Simon will turn your list of agreed things into the correct wording for the court. He will check all the paperwork and provide you with the details of the court costs and address to send the documents to.
Any problems in attaining the Consent Order, Simon will resolve for you.
We charge £150 to provide this service for you. Speak to Simon Walland first by booking a telephone call which will be deducted from the cost.
