How Much Does a Divorce Cost?

The costs associated with divorce 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 decree absolute application.

Court fees are paid by the petitioner (the spouse filing for divorce – the spouse who receives the divorce petition is the respondent).

The divorce fee is payable whether you personally apply for a DIY divorce online or instruct a solicitor. They 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.
