Litigation & Advice Frequently Asked Questions

How much does a Court case cost?

It varies so widely. An application to small claims court can be in the hundreds whereas application to higher courts can be much higher. You should get legal advice and an estimate before committing. At HRS Family Law Solicitors we can give you a free and frank estimate at your first free appointment. Book one today and we can talk you through your options.

My case has finished and I am not happy with the outcome. What can I do?

Seek legal advice. If you did not have a Solicitor then you can get an opinion from one. This is where our litigation service comes in very handy. We can help you with some basic advice for a small fee without further commitment. Ultimately, you must decide whether or not to appeal but be warned it is not easy to succeed on appeal and any application must be done quickly. Just because you are not satisfied with the judgement is not, in itself, a ground to appeal to a higher Court.

What is unbundling?

It is when a Solicitor helps you but is not on the record with the Court. This means that you are responsible for your case but get specific help with tasks for example with drafting a statement or document or even getting representation in Court on an ad hoc basis. We are experts in this service. Book a first free appointment with us today and we can help you work through your options.

I need help but am worried about the cost of legal advice. Can you help?

Yes, we understand that legal fees can be prohibitive for many people. That’s why we offer an unbundled service where you pick and choose the services you want and then spread the cost over a fixed period. Come and talk to us about it at a first free appointment.

What sort of services can I pick and choose?

Any that you like!. We can help you write letters before action, stand on your side in negotiations or mediation, file papers to court, prepare bundles, or coach you to represent yourself. Whatever you need book a first free appointment today and we can talk through your options.

Do you offer a fixed fee?

Yes. A fixed fee is available for all our areas of work as long as an agreement can be made between the parties without the need for the matter to be heard in Court.  Should we need to issue proceedings then the fee will revert an hourly rate or what is known as a staged fixed fee, i.e £500 per Court hearing or other marker. A trained solicitor can explain what fee will apply to your case at the first free appointment.

Can I pay fixed fees or by instalments or spread my costs?

Yes.  We have a number of payment schemes, including monthly Direct debit based on an agreed estimate.

Can I resolve the matter without going to Court ?

We always try to achieve this outcome for our clients but it isn’t always possible.  Litigation is by definition about two sides.  If the other party is reasonable then matters can often be concluded by negotiation.  If people are unreasonable, it may be more difficult. 

What languages do your lawyers speak?

We have Solicitors who can speak Punjabi, Hindi, Urdu, Meerpuri, amongst others and if we cannot help directly we have associates and interpreters available. So whatever language you speak we can help. 

How often do you return calls/emails to your clients?

At HRS we aim to get back to our clients the same day.  Although this may be difficult during busy times, we do maintain weekly contact with our clients in order to keep them updated on the progress of their matter and support them through their case.

Do I really need a Solicitor?

Legal proceedings are stressful, confusing and can be overwhelming. In order to achieve the best possible outcome, it is extremely helpful to have a Solicitor who can explain the legal jargon, negotiate on your behalf and ensure that you are treated fairly.  Our Solicitors have at least 6 years training and often the same or more in legal experience. They really are experts in family law. 

Can you help with my immigration status?

Certainly.  By securing a child arrangements order to spend time with a child for direct contact, it can help secure your immigration case and leave to remain in the UK too.

SB – Wolverhampton Branch

After finding myself in need of a family lawyer to help in a case with my children I contacted HRS who assigned me my own lawyer. I cannot put into words how this amazing woman has not only helped me with my case but also changed me as a person forever. This is due to her calm and collective approach to anything that was thrown our way, she learnt and advised me to just think things through calmly and always keep calm etc.
She is one of the nicest people I have ever had the pleasure of knowing and I cannot thank her enough.
Her professional attitude and wealth of knowledge in this field is second to none. I wish her all the success in the world she deserves it .

Thanks again

I had Mr Ahmed representing me recently and i was very impressed with his positive attitude and careful understanding of my case. He had clear communication with myself prior to the hearing date and gave me an insight into the proceedings and what to expect . He conducted himself in a very professional and friendly manner and he achieved the result i am satisfied with. I would definitely recommend him and wish him all the best for a successful career.

KW- West Brom Branch

From my inquiring online for a consultation and speaking to the receptionist was Really quick. During the consultation everything was explained in a jargon-free way by a lady who presented your company well clearly demonstrating her knowledge from the beginning to end of our conversation. I felt a real sense of relief within a short time of explaining my families situation that i was going to get the correct help at I needed at this very tough and challenging time. I was overly impressed!!!
