Fixed Fee Packages

Our Family Law Team has always been committed to helping clients and has fixed fee packages on a range of services.

These packages have been designed to provide transparent and cost-effective solutions to help you budget in times that are financially difficult.

These packages are available on request on a limited first come first served basis.

All work carried out will be dealt with by our family law solicitors who have over 40 years experience between them and are Accredited Specialists by Resolution a national organisation for specialist family law practitioners.

At Clough & Willis, we are committed to resolving family issues in a constructive way.  To speak to the team about your circumstances, call our Bury or Bolton offices today on 0800 083 0815, or fill out an online enquiry form and we will get back to you.
