If you can't agree on how to sort the finances or house, or who has the children when, then you probably think you'll be facing a steep legal bill to get it sorted!
Costs for a divorce lawyer in Newcastle are likely to be between £5,000 and £10,000 for negotiating a settlement for dividing finances and resolving matters relating to child arrangements.
Since April 2014, before anyone can start court proceedings in relation to a children issue or a financial dispute following relationship breakdown, they must attempt to resolve the matter by way of mediation.
