Matrimonial

Magdalena Gongala-Stepien, LLB (Hons), Solicitor 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.
