It is really hard to answer this because frankly the type of lawyer you hire will depend on the specifics . I needed a very good , senior lawyer as I was the breadwinner and my husband was trying to seek half my assets whilst he had stolen from me ( unknown) for 27 years . He employed a real pit bull . I ended up paying six figures in legal fees but saved a lot more in the end but I also had a brilliant judge .
Most my friends go the mediation route or with a simple less expensive firms ( all members of resolution) and spend around £25,000. I wish I could have done that .
My lawyer was Lois Langton from Finders . She was brilliant and kept costs to a minimum from her side as much as she could . The judge was so appalled by my husband and his lawyers antics he made them pay most my fees since spiteful partners and their lawyers can jack up your legal fees almost as a sport.
Message me if you need to speak but if Its straight forwards the couple usually split the assets 50 50 and shouldn’t cost the moon.
Divorce is hideous but there is life on the other side
