Amicably divorce together with one unique legal team.
For couples who wish to separate amicably, and fairly resolve financial settlements or resolve arrangements for their children, this unique service could be for you.
Unique to SE-Solicitors, Divorce Together allows couples to use one legal team consisting of a skilled Lawyer Mediator and a highly experienced Barrister.
Divorce Together can help reduce fees, and reduce issues associated with traditional proceedings. The service empowers a separating couple with the information and support to enable them to reach an agreement and if they cannot agree, help to speed up the court process.
Monicka Rai, our empathetic Lawyer Mediator will work with you and your partner both separately and together to reach an outcome. Michael George, a personable Consultant Barrister with 30 years’ legal experience will help to navigate and recommend the right options for both of you.
Is Divorce Together right for us?
Both be ready to work amicably together to resolve issues.
Both be open to co-operation and full communication, willing to provide and exchange full financial disclosure.
There must be no power imbalance and no history or risk of abuse within the relationship.
Both be emotionally ready to work together, with little risk of conflict and without high levels of emotion.
Both have the capacity and ability to freely take part, without risk of harm of adverse consequences.
You must not have been placed under any pressure or duress to take part.
How does Divorce Together work?
You will each have an informal chat on the phone with a member of our team to discuss the Divorce Together process and costs.
Agreements & Questionnaires
If you decide to go ahead, you will each be sent an Agreement to Participate and Terms of Business to sign, together with a Questionnaire to complete.
You will individually meet with the Mediator to discuss your situation, and determine whether Divorce Together is the right process for you.
If you proceed, you will have a joint meeting with the Mediator to discuss your aims and any important issues. You will then gather relevant information and complete a disclosure form.
You will both present your disclosure to the Mediator ahead of the meeting. At the meeting, your information will be reviewed to determine whether it is complete or more is needed.
You will both meet with our Consultant Barrister, who will be provided with a summary of key issues and any relevant documents. Our Consultant Barrister will then help you reach an agreement, providing information on how a Court might handle your situation.
If an agreement is reached at the Settlement Meeting, a independent Barrister from 3PB will prepare a Court Order, setting out that agreement. The Mediator will then write to you with the Court Order and related paperwork.
Benefits of Divorce Together
You pay for one legal team rather than two separate ones. By working together, you can avoid the costs of going to Court.
In a traditional divorce, dissolution or separation process, lawyers represent and act for an individual, which risks putting the couple in conflict. This can leave the couple in a confrontational position.
You both receive the same information at the same time from a successful combination of a skilled neutral Meditator and an experienced Barrister. This can lead to a swift resolution without the need to go to Court.
You can involve other professionals in the Divorce Together process, such as financial advisers and pension experts.
How much does Divorce Together cost?
One Fixed Fee Price Per Couple — £5,760 inc vat
One of the biggest benefits of using Divorce Together is that it reduces overall costs.
Instead of paying two fees for two Solicitors, you only pay one fixed price of up to £5,760 inc vat, which you’ll usually agree to share equally, so things remain fair
This cost-effective package includes the joint and individual meetings from the initial contact with your Mediator and the final settlement meeting with your Barrister.
One Fixed Fee Price per Couple for the Settlement Final Court Order — £600 inc vat
The final part of the process needs to be carried out by an independent Barrister.
For ease, we will seamlessly bring in another Barrister from 3PB who will draft the final
