In today’s times of austerity where we all have to watch what we spend, legal costs can be a worrying addition to anyone’s budget.
Many people believe the solution is to represent themselves but at what cost?
Remember even if a person is unrepresented a Judge still has the power to order costs against them if their case is unsuccessful. Advice from a Solicitor can save you money in the long run.
Venters Solicitors provide Venters Self Help Solutions in order to combat the general anxiety held by many that costs can run away with the case and secondly to meet the needs of many people who since 1st April 2013 are no longer eligible for legal aid in cases involving divorce and children issues such as contact and residence.
It means that clients can arrange an appointment to meet with a qualified experienced Solicitor in order to receive advice on family law matters as and when needed. However, the difference between the conventional instruction of a Solicitor is that the client will be “acting in person.” The Solicitor will provide them with a written note of the advice before they leave the appointment and the client will pay for the appointment on a “pay as you go” basis. There will be no further costs incurred unless and until a further appointment is arranged because no further work will be undertaken by the Solicitor.
Appointments can be used to seek advice on any family law matter, prepare statements, court documents, letters etc. A solicitor can also be appointed to represent you at court.
As well as Venters Self Help Solutions we continue to offer a conventional service where we are instructed on behalf of our clients and represent them throughout.
Venters Solicitors, Champions for Justice, are a niche firm of dedicated family law specialists, who uniquely are led by the first and only woman Solicitor Advocate Queen’s Counsel.
