Divorce Costs Don’t Need To Be A Worry

The BBC have today commented on a report from the Legal Ombudsman indicating that clients are unhappy with the costs of divorce leading to complaints.

It is clear from reading the article that there have been examples of clients who have been dissatisfied with the costs of the divorce.

When dealing with any family law matter, this involves a great deal of emotion, probably more than any other area of law.  It is personal and impacts on daily lives and relationships between partners, children and wider family members.

Most family lawyers are also Resolution members this means that the work undertaken on behalf of clients is done under a code of practice.  In addition family lawyers who work under the code of practice agree to working in a non-confrontational way, on occasions clients wishes can lead them to feeling dissatisfied with the service that they receive.

At Forbes Solicitors at the initial appointment with clients information is discussed which includes an estimate of costs.  Further at Forbes Solicitors clients have the option of considering whether they would like tailored services where clients are given an estimate or alternatively instructing us under a Fixed Fee arrangement. Our fixed fee divorce package includes all steps from initial consultation through to conclusion of divorce proceedings.

The above approach means that the client is fully aware of all information before proceeding and incurring costs which are beyond their expectation.
