At Co-op Legal Services our Divorce Solicitors offer three divorce services to suit different circumstances and budgets. You can choose either a Fixed Fee Divorce, a Fixed Hourly Divorce Solicitor Fee or a DIY Divorce.

When we have provided you with a written fixed fee quote for the agreed work on your divorce case, that fee will not change.

I just want to thank you and that I appreciate the professional and sensitive way you have worked on my divorce and wish you good luck in the future." J.W., Liverpool

Fixed Fee Divorce costs £650 +VAT (£780 including VAT)

Our fixed fee divorce service provides you with a Divorce Solicitor to take you through the usual steps in the divorce process to end your marriage. With this service you will be the person that applies for the divorce, known as the divorce “Petitioner”.

This service only covers divorces where a spouse does not ‘defend’ the divorce, and 99% of divorces in England and Wales are not defended.

How our Fixed Fee Divorce Service Works

We arrange for you to have an initial phone consultation with a Divorce Solicitor to provide you with legal advice, and to enable us to get the information we need to start the divorce process for you.

Using the information you provide we will then prepare the necessary Court documents and process the divorce for you from start to finish, and we’ll keep you fully updated every step of the way.

For more information about our fixed fee divorce call our Divorce Solicitors on 0330 606 9626 or contact us online and we will call you.

Fixed Hourly Divorce Solicitor Fee

One of our expert Divorce Solicitors can deal with some or all of your divorce case on a fixed hourly fee. Our fixed hourly Divorce Solicitor fee starts from £150 per hour (£180 per hour including VAT).

Senior Divorce Solicitors with over 15 years’ expertise dealing with international divorce, complex property issues and high net value divorce cases are also available; these fees are quoted upon request.

DIY Divorce Kit

Our Self-Serve DIY Divorce Kit is suitable for a Divorce Petitioner who wants to complete the required divorce forms themselves, starting from as little as £99 +VAT (£118.80 including VAT).

Initial advice about our Self-Serve DIY Divorce Kit is provided but after purchase no customer support and no additional legal support is available because this is a “do-it-yourself” divorce package.

Please note: In addition to our fixed fee divorce cost a Court fee of £550 is payable directly to the Court where you petition for divorce. Not all Courts in England & Wales deal with divorce cases, so to find a Court by postcode visit the gov.uk website Court finder.

“I highly appreciate your letter and the good news...as well as the professional manner in which you kept me updated. Looking forward to hear from you soon in regards to the decree absolute.” J. J., London

Getting a Divorce in England or Wales

You are required to be married for at least a year before you can apply for a divorce. You are not free to remarry until the divorce process is complete, i.e. you have received the Decree Absolute.

The only ground for a divorce is irretrievable breakdown of the marriage. Evidence of an irretrievable breakdown of the marriage can include:

  • Adultery
  • Unreasonable Behaviour
  • 2 Years Separation with Consent
  • 5 Years Separation
  • Desertion

It is very important that you get legal advice on divorce as early as possible to ensure that divorce proceedings are issued on the most appropriate basis. Amending Court documents at a later stage can lead to delay and unnecessary costs.

How Long Does it Take to Get a Divorce?

If there are no complications the divorce process generally takes four to six months to complete.

Important: In order to protect your financial assets, we recommend that you resolve your money matters alongside the divorce. Depending upon the particular facts of your divorce case, we may recommend delaying the application to finalise the divorce until any financial issues have been resolved. Our Divorce Solicitors can advise you on this based your specific financial details and circumstances.

Are there any Alternatives to Divorce?

Yes this is known as Judicial Separation and is not so common. Judicial Separation is generally used by people who have a religious objection to divorce. The Court retains the power to resolve money matters on Judicial Separation with the exception of pension sharing. The most significant difference between divorce and Judicial Separation is that you cannot remarry.

“Can I say how much I've appreciated the service that you've given? You've been unfailingly helpful, clear, friendly and efficient and it has been a very good experience having the Co-op Legal Services package and your attention in particular.” M. W., London
