In England and Wales the law says there are 5 different facts upon which you can rely to secure a divorce;

  5. Unreasonable behavior.

Our divorce solicitors are ready to give the very best family law advice so get in touch and let us see if you meet the criteria that the courts set down and determine whether you are entitled to proceed with a separation or divorce in the jurisdiction of England and Wales.

Look at some alternative ways to pay for our services?

A Legal Costs Allowance from the other party

If you substantially depend on the other party for financial support, we may be able to secure an order that results in them paying for your ongoing legal fees. This is classed as part of your regular maintenance payments. Again, there are some fairly stringent criteria, so talk to us about the process involved.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.

Litigation Lending

We work closely with specialised lenders who can advance money to pay your legal costs against the prospect of being repaid from a settlement. There are fairly stringent criteria. However, if you are virtually certain of winning a sizeable amount, but you have insufficient money to get from the start to the finish, it may well be an option in your circumstances.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.

A ‘Sears Tooth’ Agreement

A Sears Tooth Agreement is an agreement between solicitor and client that ensures the solicitor is paid for their guidance and actions throughout the divorce without causing financial fears for the client. The solicitor and their client agree that an appropriate amount of the client’s final divorce settlement is provided to the solicitor to meet the fees.

If you are concerned about how you might pay for your legal costs, contact us for advice. It is always better to pay for the best legal representation you can, rather than cut costs now and lose out further down the line.
