At Armstrong Legal, we have an approachable team of specialist family lawyers who are highly experienced in relation to property matters, child custody disputes, separation and divorce.

Upon instructing Armstrong Legal to act in your case, you will be advised in writing of the following

  • How we will calculate costs
  • A total estimate of costs
  • The possibility of you paying the other party‚Äôs legal costs and an estimate on how much this will cost
  • Whether any other lawyer or expert witness would need to be involved and how much it would cost to use them in your matter

This information is in our costs agreement which will be sent to you after your first conference.

During your case

During your case we will

  • Keep you informed of your running costs
  • Advise you of any offers to settle
  • Provide a summary of any outstanding amounts owed and the costs that you have paid.
  • Estimated costs remaining

This calculation is provided to estimate the amount you will receive or pay if the case is settled in accordance with the offer to settle.

Your account

You will receive an itemised account covering the date, description and cost of each activity carried out in your matter. The account will also make clear the amount you have already paid, any advance payments and any outstanding payments owed.

If you are seeking legal representation other than Armstrong Legal and you receive an account that states only a summary of work done and you are given a lump sum amount and you require an itemised account ask for one. To receive an itemised account you must request the person send you an itemised costs account within 28 days of you receiving the non itemised account. The person must then provide you with an itemised account within 28 days of receiving your request.

If you have queries surrounding your account please contact your Armstrong Legal family law solicitor within 28 days of the invoice date. We will ensure to review your account and advise of our findings.
