Why does fixed fee pricing only include estimates and not an overall cost of the whole procedure?

It is a commonly asked question of clients as to why a Lawyer cannot give overall fixed prices. In many cases, the direction a case takes, depends not on the client or their Lawyer but on the other party. If the other party is unreasonable or is not interested in settling, it is difficult to anticipate what the next steps are past a certain point.

Our experience is that we are able to give you a fixed price for a number of steps and then we have further meetings in relation to the further costs. These further steps will generally depend on the actions of the other party.

Is the Fixed Fee Family Law Process Suitable for Me?

At Journey Family Lawyers, we offer a number of fee arrangements. These include time costing, Fixed Fee Family Law process and ‘step in step out’ process. Sometimes a client will use a combination of all three (3) processes. At your initial consultation, your Lawyer will go through these options and discuss which one is most suitable.

In relatively straight forward matters, a Fixed Fee is often a good option. In extended matters, sometimes a combination of Fixed Fee Family Law and Step In Step Out processes are an option. In other matters, particularly very difficult matters or where the other party involved is uncooperative, it is sometimes difficult to quote Fixed Fee.
