All family law and Civil Litigation matters including divorce and children act proceedings. 


LITIGATION

            Family – Divorce

For privately paying clients, we charge £550 plus VAT and disbursements, such as court fees, for a straightforward uncontested divorce with no ancillary issues involving children and/or finances, or other factors. In all cases there will be a petition fee that is payable to the court (currently set at £550) unless you are in receipt of benefits or have a low income, in which case you may be able to claim fee-exemption for part or all of the court fees. We can discuss your potential eligibility at the first meeting.

            Family – Finances

If you require our assistance with settling the matrimonial finances, our fee earners will charge no more than £200 per hours plus VAT for all time engaged in the matter. In a relatively straightforward matter, the cost of resolving the matrimonial finances without recourse to contested court proceedings can be anywhere between £750 and £1500 plus VAT. If the finances cannot be resolved by agreement and require court proceedings to be issued, then costs may be significantly more than this and we will be able to give you an indication of cost at the time.

            Family – Children

For all childcare matters, our fee earners will charge no more than £200 per hour plus VAT for all time engaged in the matter.

            Employment Matters

For all employment matters, our fee earners will charge no more than £200 per hour plus VAT for all time engaged in the matter.

            Commercial Litigation & Debt Recovery

For all commercial litigation and debt recovery, our fee earners will charge no more than £200 per hour plus VAT for all time engaged in the matter.
