Uncontested Divorce (Fixed Price)

A fast track divorce in Ireland can be obtained in either the Circuit Court or High Court (usually Circuit Court). A divorce settlement may be reached before court in which case the settlement is presented to court for approval and a court order in the terms of the divorce settlement usually follows such approval. This offers a quicker and cheaper option where couples are agreed on the terms of settlement and is sometimes referred to as a “Consent Divorce”. We offer a fixed price arrangement where everything is agreed.
