The court fee for petitioning for divorce is £550.
If you instruct solicitors, you will also have to pay their fees for preparing the divorce petition, corresponding with your spouse and applying for decree nisi and decree absolute.
If the divorce goes smoothly (i.e. your spouse agrees to the divorce), D&G Family Law estimates that the fees incurred in acting for someone in a divorce are rarely more than £1,000 + VAT.
We most commonly find that divorces, including the court fee, cost approximately £1,600 in total.
