Access to Justice and Legal Aid Cuts - Family Law Advice
In January 2016 Lord Thomas of Cwmgiedd the Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales wrote that “our justice system has become unaffordable to most”; unfortunately this is often the case for those who need it the most.
 
GC Solicitors aim to provide access to justice for all, regardless of their social background or wealth. What we find is that ordinary people are finding it more and more difficult to access justice because of a variety of issues such as legal aid cuts, court closures as well as increased court fees.
 
GC Solicitors understand the lasting effects that people face when they are unable to get legal representation at court or simply legal advice beforehand.  As such, we offer affordable fixed fee appointments (as below). Within each appointment you will receive competent, sound advice on the law and matters relating to your individual circumstance as well as advice on how to put forward your defence if you are unable to have paid representation at court.
 
At the time of writing (May 2018) the following fees apply:
 
  • One hour appointments – Family (children and matrimonial matters) –fixed fee appointment £144 (inclusive of VAT)
  • One hour and thirty minute appointment – Family (children, financial, and matrimonial matters) – fixed fee appointment £180 (inclusive of VAT)
 
GC Solicitors have over 25 years of experience in dealing with childcare, matrimonial and financial matters at affordable rates.
