We completely understand that legal fees are naturally a prime concern for clients, which is why at Breakthrough we discuss with you from the outset in our initial consultation, a comprehensive explanation of our fee structure – including how and when such fees are paid.
Of course each case is different. For some, it is often possible to understand early on how much time is required to deal with a matter from beginning to end, so that the initial costs estimate provided proves to be a useful and realistic guide. However, as with all areas of law involving conflict between one party and another, it is sometimes difficult for us to provide an overall estimate initially, because we are unaware at that stage as to how a client’s husband or wife is going to react to each step of the way.
While we strive to resolve matters as amicably, promptly and efficiently as possible, thus keeping costs to a minimum, if a client’s husband or wife continuously raises difficulties and insists on arguing over each and every matter, then this will clearly impact upon the time spent, and hence the cost.
In those circumstances, we will always keep you regularly informed each month of your costs, so that you will have as clear an understanding as possible about them.
For the divorce process itself, we are content to discuss with you the possibility of a fixed fee to deal with the divorce process itself from start to finish.
To assist you with dealing with payment of our fees, we can accept credit card payments and we will also discuss with you, where possible, ways of spreading the cost of our fees.
All matters and concerns you may have relating to fees and payment of our costs will be fully explained to you at our initial consultation.
