What is a fixed fee?

A fixed fee is simply that - a fee that is fixed.  It is an agreed amount paid for a piece of work. We agree with you what work is needed, the amount of costs to do it and how those costs will be paid. This way you can be sure about what we will do for you and how much it will cost.

We have the experience to appreciate that not every case is suitable for a fixed fee, but our philosophy is that fixed fees should be the norm and not the exception. Our clients agree.

How do fixed fees work?

All our solicitors are highly experienced in working with clients who have family problems. We all specialise in family disputes and we consider each case individually. We agree a plan of action with our clients. Our primary consideration if possible is to determine an appropriate fixed fee.

We offer fixed fees for a wide variety of situations which arise in family disputes. Our fixed fees cover divorce, division of assets, court applications in relation to financial settlements and disputes about children as well as other circumstances which arise on the ending of a relationship.

We offer fixed fees which cover the whole of an agreed plan of action or fixed fees for stages within the process. Unlike many traditional firms, we offer fixed fee packages for court proceedings and the different stages within the case.

Fixed fees for Family Court cases

As the majority of court cases settle during the process, it would not be acceptable to our clients to quote a fee for the whole case when there is real prospect of an early settlement, thereby wasting costs.

Our fixed fees enable our clients to limit representation and their costs just to the stage that is purchased.  It is then personal choice as to whether or not the next stage is purchased giving ultimate control over costs.

There are situations which may arise which are unforeseen and which involve additional work. On these occasions our clients are told immediately and no further expense is incurred until a further fee arrangement has been agreed. Variations from the agreed fixed fee will occur if the work needed has changed significantly.  If this occurs our solicitors consider the change and the impact upon the case, and if developments fall outside the agreed plan of action then our clients are immediately notified in writing and retain the choice of accepting a new arrangement.
