Ending a marriage can be one of the most stressful events in a person’s life. There are many pitfalls to getting the divorce process wrong both in terms of costs and time, which is best avoided. Like any other important decision in life, preparation is the key to ensuring a successful outcome.
The key to any successful financial settlement is building a secure and sustainable foundation to the case right from the outset. The ultimate goal is to achieve a fair outcome that allows both parties to move on with their lives, achieving financial independence where possible.
In any application concerning children, the Court must consider what arrangements meet the best welfare interests of the child(ren) and not of their parents. Strategy, experience and foresight are the key elements to any successful case. For that reason, it is critically important that the lawyers you instruct, are positioned to provide the best possible advice to protect the welfare of your child(ren).
We are pleased to offer clients the option of fixed-fees, as we recognise the concern that can be caused by the inherent uncertainty of charging work on a time recorded basis.
Fixed-fees provide our clients with comfort and certainty in knowing that our costs for specified work will be fixed upfront, thereby removing uncertainty.
Fixed fees can be offered on an interval basis, with a fee being agreed for a small section of the work needed, or on a larger scale basis with a fee being agreed for all work involved in proceeding with a case from preliminary contact to resolution.
This allows our clients the security of being able to budget for legal fees, and to make an informed decision at the end of each stage as to how to deal with the next state in an efficient and cost effective manner.
As a starting point, on request Davis Woolfe will prepare and present any prospective clients with a proposed fixed fee for each stage of the litigation process, incorporating not only our fees, but fees charged by third parties such as expert witnesses and counsel where possible. For example, these stages will include the costs of preparing and issuing the claim at court, the costs of preparing witness statements, and the costs of preparing for and attending trial.
Whilst we can estimate the costs by taking into account all foreseeable costs, we will also seek to agree fixed fees for any unforeseeable costs.
