Top eight options for divorce legal costs – Legal Services Payment Order

4th October 2016

If divorce is on the horizon, your financial future may seem uncertain and funding legal fees can feel like a daunting prospect. That is why at Ansons Solicitors in Staffordshire, we believe in being clear about your cost options from the outset.

We offer a fixed fee initial consultation from our offices in Lichfield, Cannock and Sutton Coldfield. We also offer an attractive fixed fee divorce package so you can get the very best legal advice when you need it most.

However, getting divorced also involves financial separation and making arrangements for children. Resolving these complex issues is where legal costs can build up, depending on how events develop and how long it takes.

In this series of blogs, Laura Lambert, family law solicitor at Ansons Solicitors, explains your options for covering the legal costs of divorce and what you can do to minimise them.

Legal Services Payment Order

We will be able to advise you whether it is appropriate for you to apply to the court for a Legal Services Payment Order. The court can order one spouse to pay the other a regular monthly payment or a one off payment specifically to fund legal fees in ongoing financial proceedings connected to divorce.
