Legal Fees can be expensive. Here at Robert Simmons we aim to keep our Client’s cases as cost effective as we can. As with all litigious fields we will ask for monies to be placed on account so that we can cover any Court fees or other necessary costs. We aim to invoice on a regular basis so that you do not receive any unexpected costly bills. Unfortunately, we are unable to offer any form of legal aid. For more information on legal aid and to see if you qualify, please follow the link to: Citizens Advice.
If you have any queries regarding our fees please do not hesitate to get in touch and one of the team will be able to talk you through any costs.
We have a fixed fee for all uncontested divorce cases. This covers the cost of all correspondence, drafting of letters, documents and petitions. You will need to contact us about any extra expenses for finances and consent orders. We also offer a free half an hour initial meeting to discuss your case with our friendly experienced lawyers.
