Children Disputes Costs

First Appointment

We offer an initial meeting at a fixed cost of £275. At this meeting one of our senior solicitors will listen to your situation, offer detailed advice and explain your options. This arrangement may not be suitable in all cases, but we will confirm this when you make an appointment.

The first meeting can be overwhelming so we will send you a letter of advice afterwards, which clearly sets out everything we have discussed. After the initial consultation you can choose the level of further support you require, based on your specific needs and budget.


Fixed Fee Option

How does the fixed fee scheme work?

We know that every client’s needs are different. Some people come to us at the start of the legal process and others may need advice once the case has progressed. Our fixed fee scheme enables us to be open, honest and transparent about costs and the extent of legal advice provided at each stage. You will know exactly how much your legal fees will be from the start, and have a clear understanding of what is and isn’t included at each stage.

Am I eligible for the fixed fee scheme?

We will assess your case at the initial meeting to find out if you are eligible for the fixed fee scheme. Not all cases will be suitable. If there are allegations of domestic violence or child abuse, or if there are two or more parties, or if complex proceedings such as applications to enforce, removal from the jurisdiction or child abduction are required, the fixed fee scheme would not apply.

I am the respondent in a children dispute case

If you have received a letter from your ex-partner’s solicitor and need legal advice, we can help and you may be eligible for a fixed fee package.
