Katarzyna Smierzchalska, Registered European Lawyer (REL) is our Family Law advisor.

We offer advice in all areas of Family Law including divorce and associated financial remedies i.e. the financial settlement of matrimonial assets; separation; domestic violence; and private child care matters.

Our fees for a divorce are £900 plus VAT, and in addition there are Court fees of £550.

Fees for all other areas are calculated on the basis of the time spent on the matter at a rate of £175.00 plus VAT per hour. In financial remedy proceedings these can range from £1,000.00 plus VAT to over £20,000.00 plus VAT. The sooner parties can reach agreement the lower the fees! If it is necessary to apply to the Court, for example in a child contact or residence order, financial remedy proceedings or a non-molestation order, there will be additional Court fees and perhaps fees to employ a Barrister to represent a client in court.

Our firm has chosen not to register with the Legal Services Commission. We therefore do not offer advice on a publicly funded legal aid basis.

We offer a one-off consultation. The fee is set at £125 plus VAT for a one hour interview.
