I want to say a big thankyou to you (and your team) for your help over the last few months. Your help and support made what felt almost impossible at the beginning, doable in the end.

Family Fixed Fees for Agreed Financial Orders

When a relationship comes to an end there are usually a number of financial issues to resolve and agreements need to be made about the division of jointly owned assets. As no two relationships are the same we have developed a range of fixed fee services to meet the different levels of support that our clients need in reaching and recording the terms of their agreement.

Bronze Service
Our fixed fee for this service is £500.00 plus VAT. In addition there is a fee payable to the Court of £50.00 and our identification check fee of £18.00. This service includes:

  • Meeting you to discuss both yours and your spouses’ financial circumstances and the agreement you have reached, advise you upon the financial information required by the Court and discuss and explain the process of obtaining a Financial Order in Divorce proceedings.
  • Preparing the Financial Order and your part of the Statement of Information form required by the Court.
  • Meeting you to discuss and finalise the Financial Order for you to send to the Court.

Please note this service does not apply where the terms of your agreement include the transfer of property, dealing with business assets, pension sharing or maintenance payments. Under this service we will not negotiate on your behalf, consider and check any financial information provided or advise you upon the terms of the agreement.

Silver Service
Our fixed fee for this service is £850.00 + VAT. In addition there is a fee payable to the Court of £50.00 and our identification check fee of £18.00.
In addition to the work included in our Bronze Service we will also:

  • Advise you upon the terms of the agreement and whether the agreement is likely to be accepted by the Court
  • Include in the Financial Order transfers of property and/or payment of lump sums
  • Correspond with your spouse or their solicitor and the Court
  • Send the documents to the Court for the District Judge’s approval and respond to any queries raised by letter

Please note this service does not apply where the terms of your agreement include dealing with business assets, pension sharing, or maintenance payments. Under this service we will not negotiate on your behalf or consider and check any financial information provided.

Gold Service
Our fees for this service start at £1,000.00 + VAT. This level of service covers all advice, negotiation, checking of financial documentation and preparing the Statement of Information and Financial Order including dealing with transfers pf property, business assets, pension sharing and maintenance payments. In addition there is a fee payable to the Court of £50.00 and our identification check fee of £18.00.

Other Services
Please note that the Court can require you to attend a hearing to answer any queries raised by the District Judge upon the terms of the Financial Order. This will involve additional work which would not be included in our fee under the terms of our Bronze and Silver Service.
We offer an initial fixed fee interview to discuss which service would meet your needs and to provide you with an estimate of our fees under the terms of our Gold Service.
