Divorce is never easy, and it’s almost always expensive. The cheapest way to divorce is to begin the proceedings yourself online. Although you cannot complete the whole divorce process online, you can avoid some of the initial legal fees. Contact the online divorce lawyers at Stowe Family Law today for a free, no-obligation consultation.
Who pays for an online divorce?
Starting your divorce online is no different than applying for a divorce through a solicitor, and so the same rules apply. In the past, the top-earner in the marriage or civil relationship could expect to pay for the divorce. However, since 2006, and subject to any ‘litigation misconduct’ each party is expected to pay for their own divorce costs.

Experienced Online Divorce Lawyers
At Stowe Family Law, we boast over 40 years of experience providing professional legal advice and support. Our specialist online divorce lawyers can guide you through the divorce process for an affordable rate or a fixed fee option to help you achieve a ‘cheap and quick divorce’ depending on your circumstances.
However, please note that it costs a £593 court fee to divorce or end a civil relationship regardless of what solicitor you choose to handle your divorce. The average cost of an acting divorce solicitor is between £750 and £1,000 plus VAT. Other arrangements regarding any financial agreements or child arrangements may increase the cost of a divorce depending on the complexity of the case and if court proceedings are necessary.
The average time a divorce takes in England and Wales is around six months, whether you hire an experienced divorce lawyer or apply for a divorce online, meaning there is no such thing as a quickie divorce!
