Taking the Stress Out of Court Order Applications

01 November 2016

In many family law and divorce cases it's often necessary to obtain a Court Order. This may be as a result of a number of different situations such as a divorce, a dispute over your financial settlement, a dispute over the arrangements for your children or over your property with an unmarried partner.

Even if you are in agreement with the other person, it may still be necessary to have this agreement made into a Court Order to protect your future position. This is especially the case in respect of a financial agreement on divorce. Without a financial Court Order, even if you are divorced your ex- spouse could still have financial claims against you. For details see Clean Break Order explained.

Whatever your situation, applying for a Court Order can seem daunting and often it is difficult to know even where to start.

Our Family Law Solicitors are experts in all areas of Family Law and Divorce and we can guide and advise you through the process step by step in order to achieve the best possible outcome for you. We always strive to minimise stress and to keep matters as amicable as possible for the benefit of everyone involved, especially children.

With Co-op Legal Services there are no hidden charges and no nasty surprises. We will agree our Solicitors fee with you upfront before any work starts.

In addition to our fee a Court fee is payable to the Court, and Court application fees vary depending on the type of Court Order.

Once we have provided you with a written quote for the agreed work, that price will not change.

We believe that being up front about our Solicitor fees and agreeing them with you in advance substantially reduces the stress of Court applications.
