Family Law Funding

We will discuss funding and fees with you from the start, before you incur any cost.

If Legal Aid is available for your case we will apply without charge to the Legal Aid Agency seeking funding.

If Legal Aid is not available for your case we can offer fixed fees and pay as you go instalments and "No Win No Fee" in suitable cases.

We will always give a clear written indication of our fees and the money we expect to pay out on your behalf during the case at the start and from time to time during the proceedings so you always know so far as is possible the costs you have agreed to incur.

The government has cut back availability of Legal Aid in these cases.

It is available for Family Law cases involving domestic violence, forced marriage or child abduction and Children Care cases. In all other family cases Legal Aid has been abolished.

To enable representation in such cases, we offer a combination of fixed fees and pay as you go options. So far as possible we will tell you the cost of the work we do, set limits and invite payment by instalments as the case progresses.

It is possible that the court will make a costs order as part of the settlement in certain types of proceedings.
