There was talk about a possible rise to the Court fee for issuing a Divorce and it did indeed rise from £410 to £550.
It is important to be aware that this is the court fee only and not the cost of legal fees for advice and assistance throughout the process, however, there are a variety payment options available for the legal advice fees to try and help to manage the cost.
Coming to the decision to separate and to actually initiate Divorce proceedings is an incredibly difficult decision to make and adding to that the worry about costs only increases that difficulty.
In addition to payments options for the legal advice fees, it is possible to apply for fee remission and some people may be eligible for either full exemption from the Court fee or a reduction depending upon their assessment.
Here at Fidler & Pepper we know that at such a difficult time people do not need the added worry of costs and therefore we have tried to reduce that worry as far as possible by offering a variety of payment options including our Pay As You Go Divorce. In addition to this we offer a 30 minute free consultation where these options can be fully explored.
