Family and Matrimonial/Divorce

The breakdown of a marriage or relationship is a very emotional time.  At Kerwoods we pride ourselves on our understanding at this very stressful time for you and your family.
Our specialist family law department will offer you the patience and the help that you need.

Our matrimonial and family services include amongst others:

  • Divorce
  • All Related Financial Matters
  • Cohabitation Arrangements
  • Child Arrangement orders (formerly Residence and Contact Applications)
  • Child Cases involving Local Authorities

We offer a fixed fee divorce for cases proceeding in the English/Welsh County Court system so you will know at the outset what it will cost.

For The Petitioner
It costs £420 plus VAT and Court fees (currently £550 and you may be exempt from part or all of these fees).  The fixed fee is on the basis that the divorce is undefended and without any unforeseen complexities, for example in having to serve the Respondent personally or having to arrange for a Marriage Certificate to be translated.
What Is Included

  • The initial face to face meeting with our specialist family Solicitor
  • The preparation of all Court forms required to obtain your divorce
  • Correspondence with yourself, the Court and your spouse or spouse's Solicitors

What Is Excluded

  • Locating or having the other party served with the Divorce Petition if he or she does not co-operate
  • Dealing with a defended divorce in any way
  • Dealing with any unusual features
  • Dealing with issues in relation to finance or children

All You Need To Do Is

  • Provide us with your original Marriage Certificate (which must be in English)
  • Provide us with all information needed to complete all the divorce documents.
  • Pay all fees due promptly (we will accept payment of our fees and VAT by instalments to be paid as the case progresses). The Court requires their fees to be paid in advance.


For The Respondent

The fixed fee package is only £200 plus VAT.

What Is Included

  • The initial face to face meeting with our specialist family Solicitor
  • Correspondence with yourself, the Court and your spouse or your spouse's Solicitor

Please ask for an estimate in relation to finance and children issues and we will provide you with a full costs estimate for all other issues.  
If you wish to seek some general advice in relation to financial and/or children issues we offer a fixed fee initial meeting for up to 1 hour. This has to be specifically booked at the time of your making the appointment.
