It is always recommended to instruct a solicitor to help you throughout your divorce to ensure you receive the best possible advice and outcome. Solicitors can help you navigate the divorce process and assist with related matters such as financial settlements, no-fault divorce and dividing assets.
You are not legally required to enlist a solicitor to help with your divorce, although it is highly advisable in order to achieve the best possible advice and outcome.
Solicitor fees for divorces can vary depending on the nature of your case. The cost of a divorce solicitor includes the costs involved in attending court, negotiating with your ex-partner, and preparing any legal documents required.

The general rule is the petitioner (i.e. the person applying for divorce) is responsible for paying any fees that may occur during the divorce process, such as solicitor fees. However, it is possible that the petitioner may include a claim in their divorce application, that the respondent should pay the petitioner’s own fees.
When speaking to a divorce solicitor for the first time, it is advisable to be prepared and come up with a list of questions that you want answered. These are the questions that divorce solicitors are typically asked at the first meeting
- Will my divorce go to courts?
- Will I get custody of my child?
- How much will my divorce cost?
- How long will my divorce take?
- How much can I claim in a divorce settlement?
While these are the most typically asked questions, it is more beneficial for you to ask the following of asking of your divorce solicitor:
- Who will be working on my divorce case and what are their qualifications?
- How much experience do you have in dealing with divorce cases?
- How often do I expect to hear from you with updates on my divorce case?
- Are there any steps I can take to keep costs down?
- How will my assets be valued?
It is entirely possible that two parties can share the same divorce solicitor – as this can often speed up the divorce process and help minimise the impact of family. This is particularly useful in the event of an amicable or no-fault divorce.
If you are unhappy with your current legal representation, then you have every right to change your solicitor at any stage of the divorce process.
We at Freeman Jones Solicitors understand the importance of maintaining a positive relationship between you and your legal representative at such a difficult time and always remain open to accepting new clients at any stage of divorce.
