Did you know that Frettens offer a Fixed Fee Divorce?

  • Posted

Frettens Solicitors pride themselves on offering high quality low cost legal services. An example of this is our Fixed Fee Divorce package.

The Fixed Fee Divorce package includes all the necessary steps from instructing us as your solicitors through to the Decree Absolute.

Our fees for this package are £1260 (including VAT) and this includes court fees (which are £340 for filing the petiton and £45 for the decree absolute). The only other costs which may sometimes be necessary are a fee of £9.00 if we need to obtain a copy of your marriage certificate, and a fee of up to £9.00 when you swear your Affidavit, but this can be free if you swear this document at a local court office.

This package is for cases which are undefended by your husband / wife. To make managing your budget easier, Frettens also offer a payment plan.

Julie-Ann Harris, Head of the Family Team, comments “If you have any questions please do not hesitate to get in touch with me or a member of our team. We will be happy to run through the costs or answer your initial questions. We are also pleased to offer a free initial appointment for all new clients. We have always offered this service because we recognise the importance for clients of deciding whether they can work with a particular solicitor and to find out more about the process and likely outcome. Our family lawyers offer positive, down to earth advice, and we hope that this initial meeting allows you the time to see this as well.”

Contact a member of our Family Team on 01202 499255 to arrange a free initial appointment at either our Christchurch or New Forest office, where you will be able to meet your solicitor with no obligation or charge.
