There is no escaping it, getting divorced can be a highly emotional time and getting legal representation to help you may seem daunting; but it needn’t be. At Prentice Family Law, we are divorce solicitors in Weybridge highly experienced in family law and we aim to provide you with a personal service that is tailored to meet your needs. We want you to trust that we’ve got everything in hand to ensure that you get the best out of a difficult situation.
How we can help
As divorce solicitors in Weybridge, we want to help you over the first hurdle, so we offer a free telephone consultation. During this, we will be able to assess your individual needs and offer you a strategy plan of how we will deal with your divorce. We can also advise you of the costs that will be involved, in order to help you know what is ahead and reduce some of the stress that could be caused by the unknown.
One of the guaranteed costs of getting divorced is the court fee for processing the divorce. Additionally, if you choose to complete the legal paperwork yourself, this won’t cost you anything. If you require legal support with the paperwork, we charge a fixed fee plus VAT. No matter how long it takes for the paperwork to be completed, you won’t be charged any more than this.
In terms of the timescale, the divorce proceedings start with a petition and end with a decree absolute. This process should take around 6 months.
Other areas of support
You may be looking for divorce solicitors in Weybridge because you require help with reaching a financial settlement, or with dealing with private child matters. We don’t deal with public law, but we have the specialist knowledge and expertise to deal with all areas of family law ‘child custody’ matters. We know that you want your children to be happy and we hope that you will be able to come to an agreement between yourselves about what will work best for your children. We understand that this isn’t always possible and so there are steps we can then take for you. Rest assured, we are here to help and get the best outcomes for you and your children.
In terms of financial settlement, it is advised that support for this is sought early on as it can be the most complicated area of divorce agreements. We understand that you will be feeling emotional about everything and we will take control of the situation straight away from the initial free telephone consultation.

We want you to trust that we will act quickly, efficiently and with your best interests at heart, because we believe in delivering the best service we can for you.
