How Much Does a Divorce Cost In The UK?

The costs associated with divorce in the UK fall into two categories. Firstly, there are the mandatory court-filing fees that from September 30th 2021 cost £593 in England and Wales. These court costs also cover your final order (decree absolute) application.

Court fees are paid by the petitioner (the spouse filing for divorce) or can be shared if a joint application is made.

The divorce fee is payable whether you apply yourself or instruct a solicitor and will not be refunded once you are sent notice that your application has been issued.

Secondly, there is the cost of legal fees associated with instructing a divorce solicitor. There is no conclusive answer to how much a family law firm could charge. It’s costed on an individual basis and will depend on whether they charge on a fixed-fee basis or by hourly rate.
