What will it cost?

Clear Costs

Initial telephone consultation
We provide an initial consultation during which we will provide you with detailed information on the costs involved in your case.

We understand you will want to budget for the cost of work and to assist you with this, we offer fixed fees for a range of services, subject to an initial assessment of your case.


Why fixed fee?

  • Certainty for you about the costs involved
  • Pay for the outcome you require – not the time taken by your lawyer

What if a fixed fee is not appropriate?
If a fixed fee isn’t suitable for your particular situation, then we will provide an estimate for the work to be completed based upon hourly rates.

There are some circumstances where hourly rates may prove to be cheaper than a fixed fee, for example, where agreement has already been reached and we are just drafting an agreement or order; or where there are no assets involved and all that is required is an order dismissing any future claims.

Financial Settlements / pensions / property
Sorting out the financial settlement for divorce can be difficult as each case is different.  It is therefore difficult to estimate the possible costs involved.  We do however, appreciate that people like to have an understanding of the potential costs involved.

We will assess the complexity of your individual case and based on this assessment, we may be able to offer fixed fees for negotiating a financial settlement on your behalf, without the need for a court application, or for the stages of dealing with a court application.  This fixed fee would be agreed with you and based on the specific needs of your case.
