GO­ING STRAIGHT TO COURT

South Wales Echo - - Your Money -

IF YOU can agree ev­ery­thing be­tween you, a so­lic­i­tor can draw up the doc­u­ments for £500-£1,000, plus court fees of around £500.

If you fall out and start swap­ping so­lic­i­tors’ let­ters you’ll eas­ily run up £4,000 to £5,000 of costs. If you go through the en­tire court process, you can spend £10,000 – and plenty of peo­ple end up spend­ing more than dou­ble that.
