    Hi Im considering representing myself when i file for divorce i’ve  had a Chat with a solicitor and they’ve informed me that the cost is around £1500 but i’ve since found that this doesn’t incLude court fees of about £600
    i’ve had a look  online and there’s several places that offer a guided “do it yourself” package, has anyone had experience of this? A friend on mine recently filled for divorce and said he could have taken care of most of it himself. my concern is the financial settlement obviously I would look to a solicitor for this but would they chaRge be roughly the same as if i’d used them for the whole procEss. things are tight and I could really do with not throwing Money away unnecessarily.SO many things to consider my head is spinning. Right now i just need to make a start on getting my life back i just can’t afford the otheR options  {/Y}

    Hi Matt

    I went through divorce online I paid £400 for the divorce and consent order and an additional £550 for the court fee.  Both are still going through the process.  If you can sort out your financials with the OH then this is a cheap way of getting things completed.

    I hope this helps let me know if you have any further questions.
