Divorce Questionnaire

Step 1 - Please read these instructions before completing the questionnaire

The information you provide in the questionnaire will enable us to prepare the draft divorce papers for your approval. If you have any queries when completing the questionnaires please contact us for further advice by calling 01228 829530 or send us an email using the contact form below. There are a number of documents on this page for you to download. The documents are in PDF format. To view them you will need a PDF viewer. If you do not already have one installed on your computer you can download a copy of Adobe Reader.

Step 2 - Please complete our online divorce questionnaire

To apply for a fixed fee divorce please complete our divorce questionnaire. After you have completed the questionnaire we will prepare the draft divorce petition and email / send it to you for approval. There is guidance to help you complete the questionnaire, but if you have any further queries please call or email us and we will answer your queries as quickly as possible.

Step 3 - Do you wish to apply for a court fee exemption? If yes, download application.

The court fees payable when filing a divorce petition are currently £550, payable when issuing the petition with the court. If you are in receipt of state benefits or on a low income your may qualify for a court fee exemption or remission. To apply for a fee exemption / remission you will need to complete an application and submit original evidence of means to the court with the divorce papers prepared by us. The court will then assess whether you are entitled to a fee exemption.

Step 4 - What next?

After you have submitted the questionnaire, if we need to clarify your responses we will contact you before finalising the the draft divorce papers. Once we are happy with the draft papers we will email them to you for final approval. After you have approved the divorce papers we will then arrange to issue the divorce papers at court. We will then manage the divorce process for you, right through to obtaining the decree absolute, at which point you will be divorced.
