    Our costs

    Our work is charged at an hourly rate. We offer a free first appointment at which we can discuss funding methods and advise you on the best way forward.

    We are able to offer legal aid to those who are eligible. Legal aid is automatically available to parents whose children are the subject of care proceedings and is means tested in all other family proceedings. We will endeavour to obtain legal aid in your case if at all possible.
