Judge calls for fixed pricing in finance cases

A senior family Judge has called for fixed pricing for each stage of a finance case after he heard a case where the costs of both parties totalled £920,000 or 31.9% of the assets of the marriage.

In this particular case the costs were so high partly due to both parties being allowed to appoint their own expert witness which cost them collectively £154,000.

However, it is true that costs can quickly get out of hand and that is why at Higgins Miller we offer a fixed fee programme for each part of your case. Our clients tell us that this makes it much easier for them to feel in control of their spending and more able to concentrate on dealing with their case without worrying about mounting costs.

For more information about our fixed fees (available in most areas of family law) please contact us.
