We offer a fixed fee service for uncontested divorce and dissolution. We also offer a service tailored to your individual circumstances in the event that your divorce or dissolution is complex or requires separate legal advice regarding any particular issues or is likely to be defended.
Our fixed fee options come with the promise of certainty when it comes to fees and we will advise you of the fixed fee options that are available to you after discussing your needs. This can include work in relation to finances, in appropriate cases.
