The Divorce IFA operates a transparent charging structure. It is fee only and I will engage with you first so you know exactly what you are paying for. I do not take commissions and there are no hidden charges.
I offer an initial consultation of up to 30 minutes at my expense and with no obligation to you. This can be done either face to face, by telephone or on Skype. There are scheduled call times available on request.
Where advice is needed on a specific aspect I work on a fixed fee basis so you have a clear understanding of the costs involved and so it is not open ended. This will be agreed with you and before you proceed I will write to you with an engagement letter. It is based on a fixed hourly rate of £175 plus VAT. On this basis, the typical engagement I am instructed on is for 2 to 3 hours work.
This will range from £500 to £1,000 plus VAT depending on the work involved. I will be able to give a fixed price once I am aware of the full circumstances. (NB. If the services of an actuary are needed this will be charged for separately).
Where I am asked to implement a pension sharing order the charges are as follows:
|Pension Sharing Value||Initial Fee (%)|
|£100,000 – £249,000||2%|
|£250,000 – £499,000||1.75%|
*Please note there is a minimum charge of £1,750 for any pension sharing implementation.

Where no face to face meeting is required I will discount the implementation charge by 0.5%.
Where my ongoing review service is taken the initial implementation is reduced to 1% initial and then 1% ongoing subject to minimum initial and annual charge of £1,750
