Fixed Fees

We offer a fixed fee is for certain types of family law proceedings.

The areas in which we can offer fixed fees are:

• Undefended divorce where we act for the Petitioner (the person who is taking the divorce proceedings).
• Undefended divorce where we act for the Respondent (where you are not defending proceedings brought by your partner)
• Undefended civil partnership proceedings where you are the Petitioner
• Undefended civil partnership proceedings where you are the Respondent

There are strict terms and conditions that apply to the proceedings that are covered by fixed fees and you will be provided with full details upon request.  

In addition there are some other proceedings where we may be able to offer fixed fees but usually they are to those on a limited income only

These can include -

• Separation (where a deed of separation is required)
• Consent Orders after terms are agreed between you
• Children proceedings (up to a specified stages)
• Financial proceedings on divorce or civil partnership dissolution (up to specified stages)
• Injunctions

To be eligible for this fixed fee advice your income from all sources must be under a specified level and there must no complexity or additional work and special terms apply.  If the expected work is exceeded then additional charges apply. You would need to contact us for us to make an assessment of your eligibility and you would therefore need to telephone our office on (01702) 527815.  

We will arrange an appointment at which you will be assessed for your eligibility.  A fixed fee will be payable for this appointment but you will receive general legal advice at that stage and if you are found to be financially eligible for subsequent fixed fees you may receive credit for the initial fixed fee that you pay at this interview depending upon what instructions are received at that appointment and what further work is required. 

There are strict terms and conditions that apply to the proceedings that are covered by fixed fees and you will be provided with full details once we have assessed your financial eligibility to receive this fixed fee advice.

If you are interested in further information about our fixed fees telephone us email us or use the contact form on this website.
