Divorce fixed fees

Whether you are just at the stage of thinking about divorce and wanting some initial advice or you’re definitely in need of a lawyer to represent you, we offer a range of services to help from our ‘Free Initial Assessment’ through to full representation.

Divorce also covers a vast range of circumstances – from everything being completely agreed through to, sadly, quite bitter and acrimonious court proceedings. Our divorce experts can help whatever your position.  Getting the right lawyer is vital – the level of legal knowledge and expertise can make a real difference to the outcome and their levels of customer service can make a real difference to the experience. John Donkin Solicitors’ specialist, local divorce lawyers excel on both fronts and will work to get the absolute best outcome for you.

    **What are disbursements?

    • Disbursements are sums of money that need to be paid out to third parties as part of your case. Court fees are disbursements but we have separated those out to help you work out what your case is likely to cost you.
    • Other disbursements could include payments to a Barrister or payments for Expert Reports for example, if issues of alcohol or drug use arise and testing needs to be done.
    • We will always discuss with you any likely disbursements as your case progresses and we will obtain your prior approval of any amounts to be paid before you have to pay them.
