We offer an initial consultation for a fixed fee of £80 plus VAT which covers an initial appointment of up to 30 minutes where we will provide you with advice tailored to your circumstances and the advice will be confirmed in writing.
We are now able to offer a fixed fee service in certain circumstances in relation to some family matters. For example to represent a Petitioner in relation to an uncontested divorce we would charge a fixed fee of £500 exclusive of disbursements (eg Court fees) and VAT. To represent a Respondent in these circumstances we would charge a fixed fee of £350 exclusive of disbursements and VAT.
We are also able to offer a fixed fee service of £500 in certain circumstances in relation to a number of other family matters for example financial matters ancillary to divorce proceedings, separation agreements, consent orders, cohabitation agreements and private law children matters. This can potentially include representation at Court hearings in relation to those matters.
To enquire as to whether our fixed fee service may be applicable to you contact a member of our experienced family department who will be able to provide you with further details and discuss your needs in full. Please contact our Family Department on 5144323 (Sunderland office) or 5118222 (Seaham office).
