Any Additional costs - 'Disbursements'
In addition to our costs there may be some other payments to third parties relating to your case that you will also have to meet. We call these disbursements.
Usually these are court fees which are fixed, but could include fees for experts or other professionals that are necessary for your case but which can vary.
Typically for a divorce the Court fee is £410 and there are no other additional charges, but if you do not have your original marriage certificate the fee could be up to £10. A surveyor may need to value your house for example if this isn’t agreed. He or she may charge in the region £360 of which you would usually have to pay half. Whatever the disbursement we will agree this with you so that you can meet this cost in advance of when it needs to be paid.
