Fees

We will always talk to you about fees at our first meeting. This is not because we are greedy but because we are open and honest about our fee arrangements and do not believe that these should be a “nasty surprise”.

We offer free 15 minute appointments but this is simply to let you know if we can help and advise on costs. No substantive advice is given.

We also offer a 30 minute fixed fee appointment which will include advice where it can be given for £75.00 plus VAT.

Sometimes we can work for a fixed fee and we are always happy to give you a fixed fee quote if we can. Unfortunately not all work is suitable for a fixed fee. This is because we often cannot tell when we first meet whether your case will be completed in just a few weeks with a small amount of work or whether it will still be going on a year later and heading towards a lengthy Court hearing. In these cases we will work on an hourly rate which we sometimes call “pay as you go”. In these cases we will try to give you an estimate of the likely costs. Usually this will be a “best case” and “worst case” guidance.

In some cases we can offer you the choice of a fixed fee or “pay as you go”. We will look at both options with you in an honest and open way so that you can choose for yourself which approach best meets your needs.

We can offer monthly payment plans and in suitable cases we can even access loan facilities to allow you to pursue particular applications to the Court you might not otherwise be able to fund. We are Panel Solicitors for one of the main Litigation Loan companies, Novitas Loans. The company provide loans for family law proceedings in cases where the client owns a property against which the loan can be secured by a Legal Charge. These loans are best suited to a client who fully expects that at the end of their case the matrimonial home will be sold and they will be receiving sufficient funds from the sale to discharge the loan. The loan is not repayable until the end of the case. More information about Novitas is available on their website http://www.novitasloans.co.uk/novitas.html

Legal Aid is still available for cases where you have been the victim of domestic violence or if Social Services have been involved because your children are considered to be at risk.

We have set out below some of our typical fixed fees. We would need to agree a fixed fee quote with you before undertaking any work on a fixed fee basis so these might change because of your circumstances.

Divorce (with you starting proceedings): £475.00 plus VAT = £570.00

Divorce (your partner issuing proceedings): £250.00 plus VAT = £300.00

Mediation referral: £120.00 plus VAT = £144.00

Post Mediation advice: £300.00 plus VAT = £360.00

Financial Consent Orders: £750.00 plus VAT = £900.00
