Expert Divorce Solicitors

Ending a marriage can be an incredibly upsetting and stressful time. Many people turn to an experienced and compassionate Family Law and Divorce Solicitor to guide them through this difficult period.

If you’re thinking about ending your marriage, it’s a good idea to get legal advice as early as possible so you know what your options are. Sorting finances, living arrangements, child arrangements and other things can feel overwhelming, but we’re here to give you practical advice so that you can take it one step at a time.

GloverPriest’s specialist Family Law and Divorce Solicitors are here to help you navigate the process and support you in making the decisions that are right for you.

How to Get a Divorce

Currently, the only way to legally end a marriage is to prove that it has broken down by one of these five reasons:

Looking through these options and deciding which one applies to your circumstances isn’t easy, but, with our years of experience, we can sensitively talk through these options with you and bring clarity to what you’re facing. 

What is a No-Fault Divorce?

A no-fault divorce allows married couples to get a divorce or end their civil partnership without having a specific reason, preventing blame from being passed between spouses and hopefully making the split somewhat more amicable. 

If both parties agree a divorce is the best course of action, they can make a joint application. However, if only one party applies for a no-fault divorce, the other spouse cannot contest the decision.

How Much Does a Divorce Cost?

The standard fee for a divorce is £593, payable directly to the court when the application is submitted. This doesn’t include any legal fees or representation.

If you are the sole applicant, you are liable for the court costs. If you’re submitting a joint application, whoever is named as ‘Applicant 1’ will pay the fee. 

Usually, each applicant will pay for their own legal fees (should they choose to instruct legal representation, which is always recommended but not compulsory). 

How Long Does a Divorce Take?

If there are no complications, a divorce usually takes a minimum of 26 weeks (around 6 months). It’s also worth noting this time frame doesn’t include any negotiations or mediation before the application is submitted. 

Legal Aid Funding

GloverPriest unfortunately are unable to support legal aid-funded cases. 

It is worth noting, however, that from 1st April 2013 changes to Legal Aid Funding for people going through divorce or separation has changed. Under the new rules, Legal Aid is now limited to low-income applicants (on benefits or means-tested) but only if their situation falls into one of the following categories:
