This fixed price package is relevant if you would like a Woolley & Co solicitor to act for you as the applicant in an expat* divorce or civil partnership dissolution.

*Expat refers to a situation where you or your spouse are originally from England or Wales, live abroad and would like to use the English Courts to obtain a divorce. It may also apply if you married in another country or were born outside the UK but have made your home here.

This fixed price is for you if you want:

  • all your divorce/ dissolution paperwork taken care of
  • guaranteed fees
  • advice from an experienced family lawyer on the legal implications of ending your marriage or civil partnership
  • access to your lawyer by email and direct dial telephone
  • a lawyer who explains everything in plain English

Your lawyer will collect all the relevant details from you, correspond on your behalf with the other parties involved (your spouse and their solicitor, if appropriate) and prepare and file all the relevant papers.

Fixed price applicant expat divorce/ dissolution

Our fees: £1,200.00
VAT on our fees: not applicable if you live outside the UK
Court fees: £593

You will be allocated a family lawyer to handle your divorce/dissolution. They will be selected from amongst our team of fully qualified and experienced family law experts. You will be provided with email, direct dial and mobile telephone contact numbers for your lawyer and be served under our terms and conditions which include a number of guaranteed service standards offered to all clients.

Work included in the fixed price

Considering issues of jurisdiction and providing advice on your ability to divorce under the laws of England and Wales.

We will make an application for divorce on your behalf and:

  • collect all relevant details from you and complete the online application
  • explain the procedure and timetable to you and help you understand the process
  • follow and advise on court procedure to achieve both the Conditional Order and Final Order for divorce/dissolution
  • answer your questions and concerns about the process and consequences of divorce/dissolution
  • advise on the legal implications of ending your marriage or civil partnership and suggest further steps you may need to take.

Throughout the process we will keep you informed of progress.

This fee assumes there are no additional issues to be resolved (for example not being able to trace or serve the application on your spouse; needing to obtain a copy or translation of your marriage certificate; or your spouse attempting to disrupt the process). It also assumes there is no dispute over who should pay the costs of the divorce/dissolution.

This fixed price does not include advice on reaching a financial settlement with the other party or agreeing arrangements for your children. If you need help in this regard your lawyer will provide you with a quote.

Why pay a fixed price?

By paying a fixed price at the start of your case you have certainty about the costs involved. The alternative is to pay an hourly rate for the time your lawyer spends on your case. We believe you should pay for the work that needs to be done, rather than the time it takes to do it.
