    If it's uncontested, then it's only a few euro for sworn affidavits, and registered post of same to the other party.

    Unless it's changed significantly, mine cost less than €75.00. Did it all myself in 2007.

    My friend did it recently and only cost a few hundred, it would have cost less if the person she was divorcing didn't keep contesting it

    Thanks so much for replies, so sounds like I would be mad to use solicitor then? It's literally just the fear of having to speak in court putting me off, read in another discussion the judge can be hard on you and put u on the spot?

    no harm getting a consultation if any issues raised by other side, be careful with pensions as well

    I can confirm doing the same as poster up above using www.irishdivorceservices.ie. They were brilliant.

    Don't recall the judge asking us anything in particular other than I think to confirm who we were and if we were both sure what we were doing.

    That website basically produce all of the documentation for you, though there was someone on the end of the phone too if needed as the date got closer. If I remember, you had to do a bit of the posting of registered documents yourself (I imagine for legal reasons), but that site literally sent me the envelopes, the registered post labels etc and I just had to bring them to the post office myself.

    Just checked the site there, Marianne was the lady I dealt with there, I think she's the lady who set it up, but I can see from the reviews she has a few others working there too.
