Family law – why choose Oliver & Co?
When it feels like your life has been turned upside down it can be difficult to instruct a solicitor. At Oliver & Co Solicitors our family solicitors are dedicated to guiding you through every step of the process. We can offer you:
- 44 years of collective experience.
- Solicitors who specialise in divorce, finance and child matters.
- A free initial telephone conversation to discuss your situation.
- A fixed divorce fee of £1,330 – this is inclusive of VAT, and includes the fee charged by the court (which is £550).
If you instruct us we will do everything we can to make the process easier for you. We know what difficulties you will have to face and we give honest and fair advice. All of our solicitors have expertise in representing clients at court, and don’t shy away from tough negotiations where necessary. All our advice is tailored to your situation and given with sensitivity.
Our family team is experienced in dealing with all aspects of family and matrimonial matters – take a look at their profiles to see what they have to offer.
Our solicitors are members of the Law Society’s Children Panel and can represent children in Care Proceedings. They are also members of Resolution. Resolution members are family lawyers and other professionals committed to the constructive resolution of family disputes. Members follow a Code of Practice that promotes a non-confrontational approach to family problems. They encourage solutions that consider the needs of the whole family – and in particular the best interests of children.
The family department works as a team and with the support of dedicated and hard working support staff we are able to deal with your matter expeditiously and conscientiously.
Services we offer
At Oliver & Co we recognise that seeing a solicitor is daunting and therefore we offer a free initial telephone conversation over the phone. This will enable you to receive some initial advice which may be all you need at that stage, or it may help you decide you need to take further action and come to see us.
Should you require more detailed advice and want to see us face to face we offer a 45-minute appointment for £99 inclusive of VAT. We will be able to provide more detailed advice tailored to your specific needs. There is no obligation on you to proceed further at this stage.

It is important that you know the cost of work we will be undertaking on your behalf. We have a fixed fee for divorce proceedings where we charge £650 plus VAT and court fees. Unfortunately, the court fees are out of our control and these have to be paid irrespective of whether you use a solicitor or not. The current court fee is £550.00, so our combined fixed fee is £1,330 including VAT.
Beyond divorce, we do not specify fixed fees for other matters as we like to ensure our fees are tailor-made to your needs. We recognise that costly proceedings add stress to your situation, therefore, we ensure that we set out the costs at the beginning of your case and review them regularly throughout. We also offer flexible payment options to suit your needs.
