Divorce in Heanor and Derby

At Broadbents Solicitors we appreciate that when a relationship breaks down, stress levels are naturally high, which is why our knowledgeable team of Family Lawyers are experienced in all aspects of Divorce Law to ensure you receive support, honest advice and guidance.

We believe that expert advice should be available to everyone who needs it, and at a reasonable rate. With this in mind, we offer fixed fees for an initial advisory meeting or for acting in Divorce Law Proceedings in Derby, whether as a petitioner or a respondent. For a one-off meeting to discuss your personal position and to assess the various options open to you, we charge a fixed fee of £150 plus VAT and we will provide written confirmation of the advice suggested.

To enable us to offer this Divorce Service, the fee needs to be paid in advance or at the meeting.
