*An estimate based on past experience. Although once we've lodged an application at court, the time it takes to process and be returned is out of our hands.
**This fee is fixed on the basis that service of the divorce application can be achieved by recorded delivery post. If Sheriff Officers require to serve or there are other issues about service of the papers, the costs will increase. We will let you know of any such increase in advance.

For obvious reasons, our fixed-fee packages don't cover divorces where there are disputes about children, finances and property.

What our clients say

  • I would like to say that the service I received from Jackie Pringle and Laura Scott was excellent. Jackie always made time to see me or speak to me as and when I required. She advised me throughout the process and kept me up-to-date at all times. Very impressed with how efficient they both were, with letters. emails and court proceedings. I would like to add a very special thank-you to Laura Scott, I have many times picked up the phone to Laura and she has advised me on things that I didn't understand. You are very good at your job and have a very good polite manner, I have never known anyone to be as efficient as you. Thank you for supporting me and guiding me throughout this process. I would not think twice about using you both again or recommending you to anyone.
