We try to provide you with as focused a service as possible to help you keep family law costs down. Here are some points you need to be aware of:
Our rates are considerably lower than most of our competitors due to the fact we are able to pass our efficiency savings on to you. We also offer options for paying as you go or in some circumstances, paying at the end.
The main methods of funding family cases are as follows:
- Private funding - you or someone, who is prepared to pay on your behalf, agrees to pay a lawyer for the work done in representing you;
- Legal Aid - since April 1st 2013, changes to Legal Aid mean you may be able to access legal aid to get help to resolve your family dispute with mediation. Legal aid is also available for cases involving domestic abuse and child abduction cases. However it will always depend on your ability to pay. Visit the Ministry of Justice website to find out more.
You may have heard of conditional or contingent fees, where a lawyer is paid based on results. Unfortunately neither methods of funding are permitted in family cases.
Our main aim is to make sure our clients get the best possible advice and gain the best outcome for them whilst ensuring costs are kept to a reasonable level. If you would like to speak to someone who can advise on the best way forward, then contact us today.
