Where there’s a will.. there’s a way.
Did you know that you can have your will written at HRS Family Law Solicitors? All of our offices have expertise in non-contentious work. We will prepare a Last Will and Testament from just £250 plus VAT. Preparing a Will is often a good idea in case of divorce because otherwise your spouse remains your main beneficiary until decree absolute and afterwards it may be that your assets do not go to whom you would wish.
We also prepare Lasting Powers of Attorney and Living Wills at very competitive rates. £1000 plus VAT and £750 respectively. Just ask at any of our receptions for an appointment with a member of the non-contentious team. Probate can be hard work. We offer a very competitive price of £1,000 plus VAT and disbursements or 1% of the total estate depending on the circumstances.
HRS Family Law Solicitors aim to offer a price competitive service with the very best customer care. That is why we don’t meddle with areas of law that are peripheral to our expertise. That is also why you can be assured of receiving the very best advice available in the select areas of law that we do offer.
Eight offices, one firm. HRS Family Law Solicitors Ltd
35 lawyers. One team.
Q: How much does a divorce cost?
A: If it is only the divorce itself with no children or financial issues then it is inexpensive. If no court attendances are required then at HRS we charge a fixed fee. Its £750 plus VAT for a petitioner and just £500 plus VAT for a respondent. Court fees are extra but you might qualify for an exemption fee. Please ask at your first free interview.
Q: How long does it take?
A: Law is not an exact science but usually it is possible to get divorced within three to six months. Allow six months or up to twelve if there are children or financial issues. At HRS we give it to you straight and that is how long it takes.
Moving on up!
In 2018 we opened our eighth office. Victoria, Ben and Namita are eager to help the people of Kings Heath address their family law and associated problems. Ben has returned to the firm from a year away studying legal practice. Victoria, the office Supervisor is, of course, a Director of HRS. Namita brings her wide experience to the office having worked in the law for many years.
We are delighted to announce that Claire McCallum and Nisha Bakshi have been promoted and appointed as associates with the company. Both have been with HRS for over five years and now commence a quasi managerial role whereby they will learn the ins and outs of the business as the first step in widening our managerial team. Both are already office Supervisors at Birmingham and Bearwood respectively and members of specialist legal panels.
Aime based in Birmingham and Delores at Wolverhampton are stepping up in to fee earning roles and are now paralegals at the firm. They will both work in the care department supporting the front line staff and maintaining legal help work which is vital in helping people who are involved with but have not yet been the subject of Court action by social services. They join the largest Care department in the West Midlands which is busier than ever.
Mobeen Tasadiq has moved in to a specialist advocacy role to replace Todd Killeen who left for pastures new. Mobeen, in turn, is replaced by Bryan Reed, a Solicitor of considerable experience with particular expertise in divorce and finance. We are very pleased to have Bryan join our Birmingham team.
We are delighted to announce the qualification of Kiran Sumera as a Solicitor on the 1st of December.
Kiran is the 15th Solicitor who has trained and qualified through HRS. She like the others trained with the firm after first excelling as a paralegal and earning the privilege of a training contract. There are currently six trainees at the firm who will now work to follow Kiran’s example. At HRS we believe in training our own.
Openings for a new generation.
At HRS we believe that training is not just important but essential to help grow our expertise and ensure that all our advisors are truly prepared for the task of giving the best advice to our clients in perhaps the most important area of applicable law to people’s lives. When you instruct a Solicitor you need to know that the advice you receive is the very best available. That is why we at HRS Family Law Solicitors specialise in what we do. Not only are we a specialist firm but we also specialise within that framework and divide our work in to private and public law.
There are three vacancies across offices and departments for paralegals to join our specialist firm. The successful candidates will learn the vital skill of preparing and arguing for Domestic Violence injunctions known as Non-Molestation orders. They will issue divorce cases and attend Social services’ meetings. The role is client facing and taxing with the reward of a possible training contract to become a Solicitor for those who excel.
Those who join us may be just three years away from qualification as a Solicitor of the Supreme Court in England and Wales. The firm pays for the required external training and requires that all staff undertake our market leading in-house course that teaches all aspects of practice when advising and assisting clients’ in the C21.
To apply, please email William Raine the Practice Manager at email@example.com with a cv and covering letter. We have positions available now and want people to start asap.
It only remains for me to with all our staff and clients a very Happy New Year!
Clive Iain Rebbeck, Director.
