Thoroughly excellent service provided via Wikivorce. Was slightly apprehensive of how it would all work, especially at a distance. However, they were swift, efficient, immensely polite, accurate, and gave regular updates. I would recommend them to anyone.
Can't fault my experience in any way. Brilliant advice / available at short notice for any questions and most importantly swiftly achieved the desired result. Found Austin Kemp after feeling HCB Solicitors were not acting in my best interests and I was correct on all fronts - even including having an appreciation for the fact Divorce is already emotional situation. Also, rather than have to query every suggested next step and be charged for the pleasure; As I'd done a little research of my own and was able to challenge their advice - however we pay Solicitors for their expertise and need to put our trust in them. Austin Kemp thankfully achieved that for me during our first conversation I was already reassured they understood what I wanted and how best to achieve it. Resulting in 7-8 months less work and no court appearances as I had been previously advised by HCB. I THANK YOU DEARLY AUSTIN KEMP. I can start my life again earlier and with a healthier bank balance because of you!!!
Amazing service. For the first time in nearly two years I feel less in a spiral and more in control.
Thoroughly professional, straightforward, timely and reasonably priced. I would recommend this firm to anyone. Thank you Emma and Austen Kemp for a great service.
Thank you so much. You were great. I wasted so much time and money with my previous solicitors and only regret I did not contact you earlier. I have dropped a line to Paul to thank him for referring me to you. I hope you enjoyed the red I sent you as a token of our appreciation.
Austin Kemp provides a pragmatic and honest approach to the individual's journey through Family Law issues. They demonstrate a willingness and capacity to respond to challenging and unpredictable circumstances. The professional, yet personal, service is naturally client centred, but with a realistic and informed view of children's needs. And it has been heartening to have such a caring team walk beside me in the long journey.
I cannot recommend highly enough Austin Kemp as a strong, commercially intelligent and the most effective negotiators. Their negotiation skills are second to none. I have seen firsthand the excellent results this team achieves for their clients.
Just want to say thanks so much for everything. You have been brilliant and very patient. I always felt comfortable calling when asking to clarify certain points of the divorce.
I can honestly say that I am more than satisfied with the management of my case and of my then state of mind. I highly recommend this firm. Thank you.
Amandeep Kooner was not prepared to be swayed from a path of professionalism to accommodate my anxiety and frustration. He would not succumb to taking instructions tit for tat response. He ensured at all times that the response he gave reflected a dignified client with a pleasant demeanour. In so doing he demonstrated his commitment to protect and secure my interests and dignity off which I am most grateful.
Although he has a dual approached role which is business and a duty of care, Amandeep Kooner showed concerns for the level of expenditure that I had already put out with no resolve. His team contained the work to the minimum and produced the maximum results. My case was quickly progressed without compromising compassion and understanding.
Very professional service! Explained everything they were doing for my case every step of the way and really helped me to understand how we would proceed. Thank you!
Intellectually bright, hardworking and extremely professional - Amandeep Kooner took my case at it most difficult as I had come to the end of my ability to remain calm and patient. Up until I instructed Austin Kemp, I had lost all hope that any solicitor could convince me in pursuing a non-retaliatory approach as I was losing ground to allegations and fabrications. Tough, hardworking and extremely professional.
Cutting back on legal costs and getting a cheap divorce may seem to be the most obvious option to help make money go further. But is a cheap divorce even an option? And if so, is getting a cheap divorce really worth it?
Whereas previously it was only necessary to pay one set of bills, on one home, for the whole family, each party will now need their own separate accommodation, meaning that money no longer stretches as far as it once did. We take a look at the true cost of a cheap divorce.
When people talk about a ‘cheap divorce’, they are usually referring to either dealing with the divorce process themselves, or using an online ‘cheap divorce’ website.
In England and Wales, it is possible to get a divorce without receiving any legal advice.
At the time of writing, the cost of applying for a divorce is £550. This is the fee that you will have to pay to apply for your divorce yourself, either online or by post.
This does not include any legal advice or any guidance when selecting your grounds for divorce.
Barely a week goes by when a celebrity divorce isn’t hitting the headlines. With large amounts of money involved, and often hefty legal fees, it isn’t surprising that many people decide to go down the ‘cheap divorce’ route.
However, it is often not the divorce process itself where the majority of the costs lie. Negotiations regarding the financial settlement, which normally run in parallel with the divorce process, are usually the most complex – and costly – part of a divorce, especially if an agreement cannot be reached and it is necessary to go to court.
Unless the divorce is contested, the divorce process is usually the most simple part of the whole task. The vast majority of divorces in England and Wales are uncontested (both parties agree to the divorce).
As we touched on above, a cheap divorce is often viewed as a divorce without the cost of a solicitor.
While this is perfectly possible, it is always best to seek legal advice from an experienced solicitor, ideally before you start the divorce process. Not only will this help you to make sure that you fully understand your rights, but a good solicitor will also ensure that there are no mistakes on any of the forms, which could cause unnecessary delays further down the line, needlessly dragging out what can be an extremely stressful process.
What’s more, getting legal advice can help to put your mind at rest about any part of the divorce process (or indeed the financial settlement) that you are unsure about.
Of course, a cheap divorce is always going to be a tempting option, especially when money is tight. But a cheap divorce without any legal advice, could cause you more problems further down the line. And when it comes to agreeing a financial settlement, not having valuable legal advice regarding your options and rights, could end up costing you more money in the future.
