At Capron & Helliwell we understand that it is often an emotional and stressful time when a relationship breaks down. We recognise that it is helpful to seek legal advice at an early stage on what you can do about the situation and in order to find out about your legal rights as this provides some certainty. We currently offer an initial 30 minute advice appointment for a fixed fee of £50 + vat.
Fixed fees will not be for everyone and will depend upon individual circumstances – we currently offer the following fixed fee packages for suitable cases:-
- Divorce – undefended proceedings – as Petitioner - £540 + vat + Court fee
- Divorce – undefended proceedings – as Respondent - £270 + vat
In more complex cases or where unforeseen difficulties are encountered we reserve the right to charge on our usual hourly rate basis for the work undertaken.
We do not offer fixed fee packages when dealing with other family law work including disputes involving children and financial settlements. Due to the nature of such matters and because every client’s circumstances are unique to them we charge on our usual hourly rate basis for the work undertaken.
