Costs & divorce

The cost of divorce will always be a concern. We will be up front with you about our fees and our settlement-focused approach will help keep your costs down.

At the end of the day what you and your partner spend on lawyers will usually be coming out of the family pot. You'll want to know where you stand on fees and be confident that you're getting value for money.

The level of costs in a divorce depends on many factors, such as the complexity of the issues and the experience of the lawyers advising you, but the main thing is the time your legal team spends on your case. Essentially, the more work that has to be done the more the costs will be. And conflict and court battles increase costs. That's one of the reasons we're so committed to a non-confrontational approach and the search for agreed outcomes.

We will be transparent about our costs by:

  • Offering fixed fees where appropriate for all or some of the work we're doing for you

  • Providing clear estimates at the outset and keeping them under constant review

  • Providing a breakdown with each bill (usually monthly) of what's been done

We will work with you to ensure you make the best use of the budget you have.
