Fixed Fee First Appointment

£80 plus VAT

One of our family lawyers will spend up to an hour with you to find out about your situation and advise how we can help.

At this meeting we hope to gain a clear idea of the issues on which you need advice and discuss with you the options open to you, the pros and cons of each option and the likely cost of each.  We will advise you whether Legal Aid is likely to be available to help pay your legal costs.

Some clients find that an hour’s advice is all that is needed at this stage to put their minds at rest, or to enable them to take further action on their own.  If you decide that you would like us to take matters further for you, then we would begin to plan the next steps with you.

If any further action is necessary then we can offer you a range of fixed fees in relation to divorce and for dealing with financial matters arising from your divorce.

Please note that the fixed fee first appointment does not cover the cost of any follow-up work following the meeting, such as writing to your spouse or former partner, or confirming our advice to you by letter.
