Divorce can be handled on a modular basis – paying for parts that you need only and on a fixed fee.  Some clients prefer to do parts themselves so as to keep the overall cost down.  We are happy to work with you so as to tailor the most appropriate solution for you.

Finances as part of divorce and separation can also be dealt with and we are able to spread the cost for you by accessing loans and payment plans as required.  Our Family Law team are very experienced and professional, but also have a friendly, caring approach and recognise that dealing with such matters is stressful and a challenging time.

At Brearleys we appreciate that charging by the hour, can make it difficult to gauge what your final costs may be, particularly at the end of a lengthy case. We also appreciate that with the changes in the eligibility criteria for legal aid then the majority of people are no longer in scope/eligible meaning than even though you may be on a low income you will still have to pay your legal costs.  Therefore we have introduced the option of fixed fee packages for some of our family work.

We know that sometimes, even with the best intentions, it can be difficult to reach an agreement which you can both live with. In those cases, we can help you with negotiations and if necessary any court proceedings.  We can offer fixed fees for most stages so that you can budget for the cost.  This means that you will know more accurately what your costs are going to be.

We can offer a fixed fee package for the majority of our services.  Although there may be occasions where your circumstances are more complex and in some exceptional cases, which are very complex, we will need to agree to work for you on an hourly basis. However, these cases will be the exception and not the rule.

The fixed fee packages usually have to be paid in advance, but there are cases where we will accept staged payments and are happy to discuss this on a case by case basis depending on your circumstances.

An example of our fixed fees are below, although these are just the most popular and we will advise you of our other fixed fee packages should you wish to contact us for more information.  These include fixed fees for financial proceedings within a divorce and for cohabitees plus pre-nuptual agreements etc.
