How We Charge

As Family Law Solicitors we aim to provide a clear pricing structure so that you are fully aware at the outset of your case what charges are likely to be made for your legal work whether you are divorcing, separating, buying a house or selling a house.

Our Family Law Solictors also understand the importance of you being able to budget and it is for this reason that we offer a number of "packages" allowing you to pay a set fee for a certain legal action. Details of these packages are set out below.

Alternatively why not "pay as you go" and receive a monthly bill clearly setting out the work carried out on your behalf and our charges for legal work.

Pay as you Go:

As an alternative to our fixed fee packages why not "pay as you go" and receive a monthly bill, together with time printout clearly setting out the work carried out on your behalf and our charges for legal work.

Our Family Law Solicitors ("lawyers") hourly rate is £195.00 plus VAT.

When calculating our charges for legal work done, each hour is broken down into 10 units, each unit being 6 minutes long.

Examples of items which are likely to be 1 unit:

Letters written or received taking up to 1 page.

Telephone calls made or received lasting 6 minutes or less.

Emails sent or received.

Examples of items which are likely to be more than 1 unit:

 Long letters written or received (will be charged at 1 unit per page).

Long telephone calls made or received (will be charged at 1 unit per every 6 minutes).

Time spent with you for example during meetings or at Court (will be charged at 1 unit per every 6 minutes) e.g. if you have an appointment with one of our Family Law Solicitors lasting 36 minutes, you will be charged for 6 units of work.

(All our Family Law Solicitors prepare bills for our hourly rate clients detailing charges for legal work done at monthly intervals and each bill is accompanied by a fully itemised breakdown).
