When I started divorce proceedings in July my solicitor told me the cost would be around £500. I'm going to pay that off by direct debit. When I saw my solicitor again last week he told me I was going to have to pay another £400-500 when I get the decree absolute around February. I asked him how come? he said "costs etc". I'm wondering if I could stop with the solicitor and do an online divorce. Any advice gratefully received. TIA. china.

you can download the forms and do it all yourself. I did mine some years ago, very simple if you're both agreeable and don't have issues with child care.

I'll find the link..

Its easy to do if there are no complications, children etc.
Daisy, can you claim deceased's pension, I thought pensions stopped when deceased?

aw thanks all, OH is not contesting he was quite happy to sit back and let me do the divorcing even though he left me. The house was in his name but my name's now on the land registry. I resent paying out anymore,my savings are dropping as the house needed work done on it so, I'll read those links you've posted to me. Thanks once again. china.
<,<Teacher's pension. >>

Surely she claimed the widow's pension, not his pension as such? Either half or one third of his pension not the whole lot.
