Family and Divorce legal services

Our Fees

We aim to be as transparent as possible with regard to our costs. We provide a monthly bill which includes a breakdown of every item charged to you.

We ask for a minimum of £500.00 on account at the start of your case (we may request more if court proceedings are imminent or already issued) and unless your work is being carried out on one of our fixed fee packages we charge time on an hourly rate.

In certain cases we offer the following fixed fees:

  • Initial fixed fee consultation of £175 +VAT. This is a one off hour long meeting to provide initial advice and discuss your options for future legal representation;

  • A fixed-fee service for a straightforward divorce. A fixed-fee arrangement is possible for most divorces where both parties agree that the marriage will end, and where you are both keen to achieve the divorce with a minimum of fuss and expense. If you are starting the divorce our upfront cost for the fixed-fee service are £600 +VAT and disbursements. There will also be some upfront court fees to pay, the current rate for issuing the Divorce Petition is currently £550, there may also be additional charges for addtional services;

  • If your wife/husband starts the divorce and you have received the Petition from the Court, the service costs £300 +VAT; and

  • If you require a consent order (a legal document which records your financial settlementthat) the charges will be £850 - £1350 + VAT and £50.00 for the Court Fee.
