Divorce and separation can be stressful enough without worrying about how you’re going to pay for it all. Couples and individuals can feel overwhelmed when there is no clear answer to how long their case is going to take, or what additional costs will arise through extended disagreements. Knowing how much you will need to pay for each stage of your divorce can be extremely helpful when budgeting for your case and choosing fixed fees allows you to feel more in control of your situation.

Fixed-fees have widely been available for other legal services like conveyancing, but fixed prices for the process of separation is a relatively new option. Every situation is different and what works for one couple won’t be right for another – a good solicitor will be able to take into account a couple’s needs and formulate a plan of action that will provide them with a positive solution. Fixed-fees can then be assigned to each part of the process, whether they choose to separate in or out of court.

Establishing the cost of your legal services also enables you to put your full trust into your solicitor, without feeling like you need to watch the clock throughout meetings – you shouldn’t have to think about your lawyer’s hourly rate while you should be concentrating on your case! And if, along the way, you find that you need to change your plans, your solicitor will be able to reassess the situation and work with you to create a new plan.
