My fees

Apart from the extent of qualifications, experience and no “rights of audience”, the difference between myself and a solicitor is the cost of the proceedings. Solicitors have expensive overheads and even to instruct them on a fairly straightforward matter can cost several hundred pounds or several thousand if contested court proceedings are necessary. A solicitor will often advise you at an early stage in your proceedings that your prospects of success are only 50/50 or sometimes less. As I work from home, I can usually achieve the same outcome as many solicitors, even for contested court proceedings, for less than £1,000.

I offer a free initial 15-minute telephone conversation to see if I can help you. Then I have two types of fee structures depending on the services you require.

Fixed Fees:

These fees are usually based on more straightforward requirements where most items have been agreed with your ex-partner and you just need help to collate the required paperwork.

Hourly Rates:

Other work is charged for at an hourly rate and I will request an upfront payment, calculated according to the extent of work required, prior to commencement of work.
