Respond to a divorce

Co-op Legal Services can support you with your divorce

Respond to a request for divorce:

If your partner has started divorce proceedings against you, our divorce solicitors can provide you with advice on responding to the divorce.

Our fixed fee divorce service for respondents starts from £400. There is no court fee to pay if you are the respondent.

Our fee is payable upfront.

Whether you're worried about assets or children, or looking for a simple split we can discuss your options with you and support you through the process.

Protecting your finances in divorce

We can also help you to resolve your marital finances and end any financial commitments between you and your spouse. Getting a divorce doesn't automatically sever your financial ties with your ex, so you'll need to make sure this is covered.

We will also discuss with you the process for resolving any matters to do with finances, assets or children. This cost can vary dependent on the case and whether both people agree on how to divide the finances. We will always tell you the costs upfront, before any work begins.

Thank you for all you did to speed along my divorce. I'm really grateful and relieved! (Ms S., London)
