For Family law related matters, it is not always possible to offer a fixed cost fee. We rely on standard hourly rate published by the HM Courts & Tribunals Service on GOV.UK.


We have tried to explain the average cost for type of work related to Family law as under:

Initial consultation to discuss employment related issue: up to one hour.

A complete divorce case from start to finish not involving children or financial arrangement: between 3 to 5 hours.

For court attendance we may have to instruct barristers, their quote also vary due to their experience. On average they charge between £1500 to £3000 for a single day appearance.


The exact number of hours it will take depends on the circumstances in your case. Such as: the amount of supporting evidence that we need to consider; case management timetable to follow, collation of trial bundles, conference with barristers or other experts etc.


The costs quoted here do not include any court fee, barrister's fee or where the first instance case is unsuccessful, advice and assistance in relation to any appeal.

Please note the anticipated number of hours and fees are an estimate based on the facts above. All applications are likely to vary and of course, we can give you a more accurate estimate once we have more information about your specific case.

All figures quoted here or anywhere else in this website are exclusive of VAT, which will be charged in addition to our cost.
