Our Charges

Our highly competitive fee structure is always transparent, and our fixed fee consultations are the perfect starting point.

Our Charges

Like most firms of solicitors dealing with Court procedures, Goodwins Family Law Solicitors has a fee structure based on how much time we spend on a case as well as the seniority of the person responsible for your case.

There are two exceptions to this rule:

  • Our fixed fee consultation where we offer an initial hour of advice
  • Our fixed fee divorce scheme where we have a fixed fee for straightforward non-contested divorces

Competitive Fee Structure

Given our degree of specialisation and experience, we consider our hourly fees very competitive, especially compared to other specialist and general law firms in Central London who charge considerably more due to their central location.

At the fixed fee meeting you are provided with one of our client care letters, which details our terms and conditions, how much we charge, including hourly rates, and details of our fixed fee divorce rate.

When you formally enlist our services, we will then write to you with a costs estimate tailored to the individual circumstances of your case. Then, as your case progresses, we provide you with regular costs information to keep you informed as to the level of costs you are incurring and are likely to incur in the future.

When we bill you for our work, you will receive a narrative describing the work done, as well as a detailed breakdown of how every penny of your fees has been calculated.

We understand that some people may wish to conduct their proceedings on their own but might require our advice and assistance as and when required. This is a service we are able to offer. We do not undertake publicly funded (Legal Aid) work.

In certain circumstances it may be possible to obtain an order from the Court that orders the other party to be responsible for all or part of your costs. If this applies to your case, we will explore this in full with you.
