Family Law

COVID-19: Despite the pandemic, we continue to offer a full range of services from our offices in Altrincham and out in the community. We are committed to providing a safe and secure service and have introduced robust measures to ensure the safety of our clients and colleagues. We ask that visitors to our offices wear face coverings and use the PPE provided. For more information on how we are ensuring your safety, contact us on 0161 928 3201.

Hill and Company Solicitors have extensive experience of providing legal advice and representation in respect of family law issues for over 170 years.

Our specialist family solicitors understand how important it is for people facing divorce or separation to receive the highest quality advice to help you resolve any issues that may arise to ensure you are protected in the future.

We are here to offer you support, guidance and understanding during what can be an upsetting time. We are committed to achieving the best outcome for you by dealing with matters in a sensitive, practical and non-confrontational way but will adopt a tougher approach when required to get the right result.

At Hill and Company Solicitors, we appreciate that every situation is different and as such cannot be treated in the same way.  We take pride in delivering a personal service and will keep you informed every step of the way.  We will answer all your questions and make sure that you always understand the implications of anything we do on your behalf.

Whether you need a single letter or our support throughout the entire process we are here to help you. Our supportive team will work with you to help you regain control of your life, your finances and arrangements for your children in a way that is respectful of you and your circumstances.

Our solicitors can provide their breadth of skills and knowledge in the following areas:

Costs & Fees

  • Straightforward undefended divorces are available for a fixed fee of £600+ VAT (and the £550 court fee).
  • We offer fixed fees in respect of Separation and Cohabitation Agreements.
  • Fixed fees are available in respect of financial matters where an agreement has already been reached.
  • In cases where fixed fees are not available, work will be carried out in accordance with our hourly rates.
  • If after the first meeting you decide to instruct us, we will confirm your estimated fees and expenses in a client care agreement and will update you regularly throughout your case through invoicing and reviewing our costs estimate.

We offer an initial meeting at a fixed cost of £90 (inclusive of VAT). At this meeting, you will be able to discuss your situation with one of our team who will explain your options, provide advice and suggest next steps. Your first appointment can be in person or over the telephone. After the initial consultation, you can choose the level of further support you require, based on your specific needs.
