what is the cost of divorce?

WHAT IS FAMILY MEDIATION AND DO I HAVE TO DO IT?

Despite how much we try, divorce is never going to be cheap, quick or easy. From legal forms, to legal fees, to making arrangements for children and assets, the cost of divorce will vary greatly per person and per situation.

In some cases, you may not necessarily need to involve a lawyer in your divorce (however, this generally isn’t recommended). Legal fees will depend on the length of the divorce and the work involved. Some lawyers will have an hourly rate on which they will charge base their fees on. Others will give you a set price for the cost of divorce.

Negotiations and Orders
MEDIATION

The cost of mediation doesn’t contribute to the overall cost of divorce, however, should you choose to use a mediator, you will have to consider the extra cost.

Mediation prices will differ depending on the mediator, however, three mediation sessions typically cost £1,500. Your MIAM, the assessment which looks at whether mediation is suitable for your case or not, can range between £50 to £120 depending on location and mediation fees.

Financial Settlement Order

Financial settlement orders will contribute to the overall cost of divorce, as will child arrangement orders.

A simple, uncontested financial settlement agreement generally costs between £500-£800. This total involves a court fee of £50 and the rest will be in legal fees, which are at the discretion of your chosen lawyer.

If your joint estate is significantly large, or if there are various complicated assets in it, then the fees could go up to around £1,500-£2,000.

Child Arrangement Order

Child arrangement orders are one of the largest contributors to the cost of divorce. A child arrangement order can cost anywhere between £2,000-£4,000, depending entirely on what the arrangement between the parents will involve.
