Edward Hands and Lewis is now a nationally-acclaimed body. For over a hundred years Edward Hands and Lewis has been an established solicitors in the Leicestershire area, but now we have branched out across the UK.
Edward Hands & Lewis offer a fixed fee divorce service, which has been developed to provide a cost effective solution to divorce proceedings.
We also offer advise upon divorce and separation where the divorce is defended.
The cost of our fixed fee divorce service depends on whether you are:
The costs of any disbursements will be the same with any firm as they relate to court fees, and it may be possible to recover some of the costs back from your spouse.
Payment for our costs can be spread (interest free) over 6 monthly installments as we appreciate that going through a divorce can be a stressful time and that it is not always easy to find the full cost of the process upfront. We believe that it is helpful for our clients to know at the outset what the divorce process will cost and when they will need to make the payments.
Our fixed fee divorce installment payments plan includes all steps from initial instruction through to obtaining the Decree Absolute, which finalises the divorce.

These services can all be provided if needed but are not included within the fixed fee above.
Should you wish to Cross Petition or defend the divorce this will mean additional work which will be charged at the relevant fee earners hourly rate. Any work on finances or children will also be outside the fixed fee. We would, however, provide full cost estimates before commencing any work for you and can similarly arrange for any costs to be paid in installments.
