If you are going through a divorce and the cost quotes you are receiving are overwhelmingly daunting then why not consider “unbundling” the work load. Solicitors work on a time spent basis, i.e. they only charge you for the work you instruct them to do on your behalf. I often encourage low earning clients to consider instructing me on an ad hoc basis.

If you feel confident enough to do the majority of the leg work while receiving professional guidance from a qualified family solicitor, then this may be a feasible option for you.
