The cost of your divorce will vary, it depends upon how simple it is to resolve, financial matters and the arrangements for your children. The more that can be agreed between the parties, the lower your overall costs will be.
We understand that most clients appreciate certainty and therefore, in cases where it is appropriate to do so, we are willing to agree with you a fixed fee.
For most of our work in the family department, our charges will be based upon the time that we spend multiplied by an hourly rate. The hourly rate will vary depending upon the level of skill and experience of the lawyer handling your matter. In addition to the time spent, we may take into account a number of other factors. These include any need to carry out work outside normal office hours, the complexity of the issues, the urgency required, and any particular specialist expertise the matter may demand.
You will be advised of the hourly rates applicable to your matter and provided with an estimate of charges in advance of instructions being accepted. We will update the estimate of pricing at regular intervals.
