At Morrisons Solicitors we understand that clients faced with dealing with their family issues may be put off getting appropriate legal advice because of their perception that the cost of consulting or instructing solicitors will be too high or that once they have consulted a solicitor they will be committed to a course of action over which they have no control.
However, there is an alternative that may be suitable in many circumstances which would be to limit the scope of the service provided so that you can be advised and assisted in your personal conduct of your matter to enable you to progress this yourself.
This can include assistance with form filling and drafting letters and documents and checking documents and forms completed by you in connection with your divorce proceedings so that the service we provide is tailored to your specific needs and on a basis that is manageable and cost effective for you.
We will not be formally acting for you or representing you on this basis but you can always choose to extend the terms of the retainer and the services that you require by agreement which will enable you to retain control over the nature and extent of your involvement with solicitors depending on your needs and requirements.
We have found that this ad hoc service works very well for clients providing that the parameters of the limited scope services are clear and understood and that this service is appropriate in your particular circumstances. Morrisons can provide this service in relation to all aspects of divorce, separation and relationship breakdown.
