Top eight options for divorce legal costs – be aware of cost changes

31st 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.

Be aware of cost changes

The costs for a divorce are often very dependent on the other person’s cooperation to resolving matters quickly and amicably. Sometimes the parties resolve to deal with matters amicably can break down and this may increase costs. Ansons Solicitors will tell you as soon as we are aware of any changes to your costs and we welcome our clients asking for an update.
