Separate well with one lawyer – finalising your agreement

You’ve come to an agreement for your divorce or separation, what next?

If you have already reached an agreement as a couple about the outcome you would like to achieve on your separation or divorce, either together or in mediation, then we can offer you a cost effective, fixed price service to convert that agreement into a binding court order.

There are three different packages we offer to help you draft your agreement. We can decide together which is the most appropriate option for you depending on the complexity of your situation.


How do I decide which package I need?

We will work with you to help you decide which option best suits your situation, but the below summary is a helpful starting point for understanding what each package covers.

More complicated financial circumstances?

If your financial circumstances are more complicated, then contact us and we will provide you with a bespoke fee proposal. We will need you to provide us with a summary of the agreement that you have reached and a summary of your financial situation. This is because it is likely that additional advice and/or documents will be required before your agreement can be recorded in a binding court order. Having the full picture means we will then be able to offer you certainty on costs.

Why choose us?

We are recognised as one of the leading teams of family and children lawyers nationally for family dispute resolution outside court. Our team of family and divorce lawyers includes highly trained mediators, collaborative practitioners and arbitrators. This means that we are uniquely placed to work with you in whichever way will best assist you to achieve your objectives, whether you both work with one of our lawyers together or need to proceed in a different way.  

Our specialist family law mediators are very experienced in working with separating couples and with children, so have the skills and expertise to assist your family. With offices across the country, we are likely to be able to support you wherever you are. 

If you or your ex partner have connections to countries outside the UK, we have extensive experience working with international families and will understand what you need to consider. When needed, we can also call upon the expertise of our colleagues who specialise in other areas of law – for example corporate, real estate, and tax – to offer you legal advice tailored to your needs.
