Shortlands has been helping clients deal with divorce
and family law-related issues in Guildford. Our main goal is to resolve any family disputes, financial settlements, child arrangements, or any other family law-related issues outside of the court. Our expert lawyers are trained to getting the best results as quickly as possible with the smallest amount of confrontation between the parties. We know that the time of divorce can be exhausting, time-consuming, and emotionally towing, so we strive to complete the process in a sensitive manner. We will work with you closely and identify the terms that work best for you.
In the event of an agreed divorce, we offer a fixed fee of £750 plus vat and court fees of £410. The process takes approximately 4 to 5 months. If children or any financial concerns are involved, then it might take longer than that. You can book your initial no-obligation consultation and we will advise you on the time and cost of this process after reviewing all the information you present to us. Sometimes these cases might become confrontational, and in that matter Shortlands is ready and fully prepared to reviewing your case and presenting it in court. If it comes to that stage, we will again revisit the timescales and inform you of the cost ahead of time.
Shortlands solicitors believe that after a divorce, our client wants to ensure they are well protected and financially comfortable together with their children. We can help you achieve a realistic settlement that can help you retain assets, pension rights and income to provide you for your future life.
All cases are different and there really is not a formula that can be applied. We will check all the information you provide us and advise you with the best possible settlement type you can achieve. Our goal at the end of the day is for the parties of the divorce to come through negotiation or collaboration. This will exclude any costs for procedures in court. If this is not possible then we can assure you that you will be able to achieve the best possible settlement in court for you and your children.
