In addition to the recent cuts in legal aid, couples wishing to divorce now have a further reason to review their finances. From Monday 1st July, the cost of Family Court Fees for divorce are rising from £340 to £410. This dramatic change in price is applicable to all the courts in England and Wales and is a non negotiable cost.
The good news however, is that the cost of the Decree Absolute is now included, thus after paying the £410 there are no additional costs, as there were once before. Nevertheless, there is still an overall increase of £25 in cost for the process. This may put additional pressure on couples looking to divorce, as they may have to raise additional funds earlier on in their divorce proceedings, rather than paying in two installments.
There is a concern that the concept of increasing costs may deter unhappy couples from looking into a divorce solution. Even though Quickie Divorce would never encourage someone to get a divorce without full consideration, we aim to provide a range of cost effective divorce solutions, that start from a mere £37.This in turn makes the process much more simple, effective, and affordable… Despite the rises in Family Court Fees.
