How a Fixed Fee Divorce Works
By Tracey Moloney, Head of Family Law

“When people come in for a divorce, one of the first things we’re looking to establish is if they are in agreement to a divorce.”

“If they are, then we can offer them a Fixed Fee Divorce.”

“The client will make one payment. We will then do everything for them from completing the Divorce Petition through to obtaining their Decree Absolute.”

“The Respondent to a divorce, during a Fixed Fee Divorce, wouldn’t need legal representation.”

“They are in agreement with the divorce and they just have to sign what’s called an ‘Acknowledgement of Service’ and return that to the court so this saves the other party from having any legal costs at all.”

“Typically, a fixed fee divorce will take between 9 to 12 months to go from start to finish, so partied can expect to receive their Decree Absolute about 12 months after starting the divorce procedure.”

“Fixed fee divorce benefits our customers because we will do everything for them.”

“It takes the stress out of a divorce.”

“We will ensure that everything is done in a timely manner, that papers are prepared properly so that the court doesn’t need to return anything and achieve a Decree Absolute for them in the shortest time possible.”

“So there are no nasty surprises, you get expert help and our expertise at a fixed fee.”
