Getting Legal Advice
If you have reached a situation where you need legal advice then you should arrange a meeting with a legal adviser. Meeting face to face will help you get to know the adviser and find out if they are the right person for you.
The right person is the one you feel comfortable with. It is crucial that they listen to you and take time to understand what you need. Look in the 'About FLiP' section to see the lawyers and other specialists at our firm.
If you can, you should bring the following documents to a first meeting:
At Family Law in Partnership we offer a range of processes you can use to resolve the issues between you and your partner:
We will work with you to decide which process is best for you and your family. We also offer a counselling service to help you make decisions and understand your priorities.
We understand that many of our clients want certainty about the cost of their legal fees. We offer a fixed fee for divorce proceedings of £500 (plus VAT) plus court costs (currently £410 if you are the petitioner).
This fixed fee applies once the parties have agreed the basis on which the divorce will be obtained. It covers all of the procedural aspects of the divorce, which will be conducted by one of our assistants, but it excludes the cost of any advice on the financial aspects of the divorce and advice on issues relating to children.
