Transparent Legal Fees and Costs from LGFL Ltd
At LGFL Ltd we always put your interests first, and that includes complete transparency with our legal fees and payment options.
Flexible fees based on time
Our costs are usually based on the amount of time we spend working on your behalf, based on our standard hourly rates. So, if we spend an hour on an issue, we charge you for an hour, no more.
Fixed fee divorces
For straightforward divorce cases, we offer a fixed fee option where appropriate. For more complex cases involving children, financial settlements and pensions, we may offer a minimum fixed fee plus additional work as required. Feel free to ask us for details at our first meeting - proper budgeting for a divorce is important for your peace of mind and your cash flow too.
Free 30-minute consultation
As part of our commitment to transparent legal fees, we offer a free 30-minute consultation with one of our Directors to discuss your concerns and situation. This is free of charge, and there is absolutely no obligation. You can also extend the consultation beforehand to an hour or more if you wish pro rata, at our hourly rate. For more details, see our Free 30 Minute Legal Advice Session page.
We fully itemise all work we complete on your behalf, showing the date(s) the work was completed and full details of what was done. You are able to ring and ask for your outstanding bill figure and any work in progress, at any time.
We will bill you every month to spread the cost over time. You can opt to pay via BACS bank transfer, credit card / debit card or international bank transfer, whichever suits you best.
We may require upfront payments for fixed legal costs, such as court fees for divorce petitions, court orders, and applications. These charges are fixed by the government and are the same throughout England and Wales. Foreign court and documentation costs will vary. We also obtain payment for other third party payments such as Counsel’s fees. However, we will never incur a third party fee on your behalf without first obtaining a quote and asking you to specifically approve the same.
