    What does a divorce cost?

    When we talk about the cost of a divorce it is important to remember that there are up to three different elements involved, depending on your circumstances:

    • Divorce: this means the purely legal aspect of bringing the marriage formally to an end.
    • Finances and property: agreeing things such as who will have the family home, how other assets are distributed and whether maintenance will be payable.
    • Children: agreeing who your children will live with, contact rights for the other partner and financial maintenance.

    Divorce solicitors charge fees on an hourly basis so the cost of your divorce will depend on the number and complexity of the issues to be resolved. Some people are entitled to legal aid to cover the cost of a divorce. Click here to see our page on legal aid for divorce.
