Any comments or experience of using this service, for the fixed fee? It does seem very good and an excellent price but I''d like to hear from anyone who has or is actually using it!
Also, is it necessary or better for stbx to also use the respondents managed divorce service? If it''s uncontested as such, does he need this service or can he do it himself?
Many thanks in advance
Yes I used it the full service including the Consent Order, start to finish I think was around 14 weeks and it is a fixed price, it cost as advertised, more importantly the work is completed by a solicitor.
My ex refused to lay for a solicitor so we ended up with a short hearing in court, there''s no reason why your ex can''t use the respondent service it''s £99
Like Dukey, we used the fixed price managed divorce including consent order. I used the services of the solicitor and my ex self repped. We shared the cost 50/50
Took about 4 months and cost about £700 between us. Absolutely recommended. The only thing I would add, is that you need to be in agreement about divorce and finances (as far as you can) to keep the cost down. It''s the point at which you begin to disagree that the costs start to rise. These packages are designed for those who can agree.
Thank you Shezi. Bearing in mind you used the "fixed" price, your costs seem high though? Obviously it''s still a lot less than the high street companies, but I''m hoping that costs will be per the fixed amount! Did you have some disagreement(s) to work out which made it more expensive? It seems that we should be able to agree matters, certainly have done so far in discussions we''ve had.
Thanks again, SMCD
Yes Stuka, the package has REDUCED in price - we divorced when it was slightly higher.
SMC - the £700 was for the divorce pack (now £279) plus the court costs (currently £425) = £704.
No, we didn''t disagree - £700 was the total price. Since we split it, we paid £350 each. Unless you both self-rep, there is no way to do it cheaper than this but I wanted the confidence of having the paperwork processed by a solicitor. I hate paperwork
