The fixed fees with regard to divorce and financial matters above have been created specifically for straight forward and/or agreed circumstances. However, in many circumstances, many matters are not agreed, e.g. with regard to children and financial matters particularly, and can make the process much more complicated. In these situations, we would advise you in the traditional way outside of a fixed fee agreement based simply on the time involved in resolving your matter. We would be able to give you an estimate as to your likely costs.
