Family Solicitor Fees

If you would like to speak to a member of the family team please telephone 01457 859123 or email familylaw@bakers-solicitors.com. We will always be happy to talk and see if we can help. One option available will be a fixed cost consultation that will include follow up advice in writing. As part of any such consultation we will be able to consider the particular circumstances of your case and confirm whether a fixed cost for further work can be provided. Whatever the circumstances of your case we ensure transparency of costs.

Bakers Solicitors is still one of the few solicitors firms that hold a contract with the Legal Aid Agency in order to offer legal aid. We will always consider whether your case can be funded by legal aid.

At Bakers Solicitors we aim to be transparent and upfront when it comes to fees. As a modern and progressive firm we are very competitive on fees because we embrace technology. This enables us to offer reduced fees compared to many of our competitors, and also provide a much more efficient service.

Flexible Rates

At the commencement of every case we will clearly set out the fees that will apply to your case. We recognise that clients are often fearful of ‘hourly rates’ and for that reason we will always consider with you the possibility of fixed prices so that you are able to budget. In cases where a fixed fee is not possible we are still able to fix cost limits and we will keep you regularly updated on costs. Costs is an issue that will always fall part of our initial discussions and we aim to be flexible to fit around your particular circumstances.

Cases where fixed fees are usually available are:

  • Divorce Proceedings
  • Applications under the Children Act 1989 e.g. contact and residence
  • Injunctions

To discuss your exact requirements please contact us.
