  • We try to be as open and honest as possible about our fees and charges.

    We will discuss all costs at the outset, so you can choose the level of support you need and ensure you are in control of the costs of your case.

    Family Fixed Fee Packages

    We have designed a number of family fixed fee packages to help you to control your costs and make sure there are no nasty surprises when you get the final bill. Our divorce packages start from just £300+VAT and any court fees.

    Not sure what to do next?

    If you are not sure how you want to progress but just want to talk to someone who can give you advice on all options available to you, we offer an initial appointment with a family lawyer for just £250+ VAT plus £18.00 for an ID check.

    Want to represent yourself but need some guidance along the way?

    Our Support & Advice package is ideal if you plan to represent yourself. The package works on a pay as you go basis, so you can control your costs by only paying for legal advice as and when you need it.

    If a fixed fee option is not appropriate for me how much will I have to pay?

    We work on a time-costing basis. In other words, you are only charged for the time we spend working on your case. This is a fair method of charging as it reflects the amount of work we undertake on your behalf. You will be told the hourly rate at which you will be charged at your first meeting and we can provide an estimate of the likely costs at the beginning of your case.

    When will I receive a bill?

    We will discuss all costs with you at the outset of your case and will send you monthly bills that state what the costs are for and provide you with a breakdown of the bill.

    How can I pay?

    We try to make it as convenient as possible for you to pay. We take cash, cheques, and all major credit cards and you can either pay in person, by post, BACS payment or via our online payment system.

    What if I face financial difficulties because my circumstances change?

    The first thing you must do is to let us know immediately if your financial circumstances change so that we can re-assess your situation. Usually we try to reach some financial arrangement to help you in this situation.
