Whether you are thinking about applying for a divorce or have received divorce papers from your spouse we can help. Woolley & Co was established in 1996 and since then thousands of people have been helped by our team of Divorce Solicitors.
How we can help
A Woolley & Co Divorce Solicitor will help you through the complete divorce process. Most things can be achieved through telephone appointments and the exchange of emails, so there’s no need to visit a solicitors’ office.
For many of our services we are able to offer fixed prices, including a fixed price divorce.
Our solicitors can help with:
- Applying for a divorce through the English courts
- Responding to a divorce petition
- Proposing, negotiating or disputing a proposed financial settlement
- Drawing up a legally binding consent order
- Advice on your rights and responsibilities relating to your children
- Applying for various orders to ensure you see your children
How much do Divorce Solicitors cost?
Most divorce solicitors will charge for work they do on an hourly rate basis. Generally, they charge based on their level of experience, although many also charge a fixed price for specific services. At Woolley & Co we offer a fixed price divorce, which is £725 if you start the divorce as the petitioner and £500 if you are responding to the divorce. There is also VAT and the Court fee to be paid.
Do you need two Divorce Solicitors for a divorce?
One divorce solicitor cannot represent both parties in a divorce. This is because a divorce solicitor has a duty to represent the interests of their client. For the divorce itself, which is a relatively straight-forward process, some people choose to proceed without the help of a solicitor. However, when it comes to agreeing a divorce settlement or the arrangements for the care of any children the advice of an experience divorce solicitor can be invaluable and ideally both parties should take advice from an experienced divorce solicitor.
