New competitive fixed fees for divorce cases

Howell & Co are pleased to offer a new fixed price for preparing, issuing and completing a Divorce, up to and including Decree Absolute. Our fees will be £495 plus VAT, plus Court fees (currently £550) and any other expenses (for example, should it be necessary to obtain a certified copy of your marriage certificate or for the other party to be personally served with the divorce petition). We believe that our new fixed fee is extremely competitive, and will give clients the peace of mind of knowing exactly how much their divorce will cost at the outset. All queries should be directed to either Peter Burden or Laura Brampton.
