Scotland's Fixed Price Divorce Specialists

FIXED PRICE ORDINARY DIVORCE

The difference between this type of divorce and the Fixed Fee Simplified Divorce is that whereas for the simplified divorce there cannot be any children under the age of 16 in an Ordinary Divorce Action you can have children under 16.

The reason for the different procedure is that, even if everything has been agreed as far as  the children are concerned, the court still require confirmation in relation to the children’s welfare.

As a result of this  the procedure is longer and costs more.

To be eligible for this type of divorce (Ordinary Divorce) you have to have been separated from your spouse for over a year and your spouse will have to sign a consent form to agree to the divorce.

If you have been separated from your spouse for over two years no consent would be necessary.

WHAT TO EXPECT

For this type of divorce financial matters should already have been agreed between yourself and your spouse. 

You will need a witness who can verify the period of time you have been separated and if you have children also confirm that they are well looked after. The only other requirement is that you have lived with your spouse in Scotland and have been resident at your current address for at least six weeks.

Although the process is more complicated than the Fixed Fee Simplified Divorce it will not be necessary for you to appear in court.

We will handle all the documentation and you will be asked to attend our offices for one short meeting at which time you and your witness will sign affidavits in the presence of one of our notaries. If you live further afield, a local notary will be able to assist.

We understand that divorce is only one of a number of important issues that matter to you. We will provide you with advice in relation to what is best for your children and how to sort out your financial affairs. Although it is not possible to set a fixed fee for this type of work we will charge on the basis of our unique feeing structure which means you only pay for the precise number of minutes we spend in your case. ( Unlike other solicitors who charge in six minute units) This will help to keep costs down.

THE COSTS INVOLVED

The time a Fixed Fee Ordinary Divorce takes to complete, depends on a number of matters and is more difficult to predict than the Fixed Fee Simplified Divorce. If the case ran smoothly  the divorce decree should be obtained within 3 or 4 months.

Our fee for this type of divorce is £641.67 + vat (Total = £770).
There are also standard court fees of £229 to be paid to the court.

As the documents required to be served on your spouse, in some cases,
if sheriff officers are needed to serve the papers there will be an additional cost to you of £90

TOTAL £999
