We try to make our fee model transparent so you know how much would cost your representation in family law matters.
Most of the time we work on hourly basis, which starts at 80 eur per half of an hour.
At the beginning we ask for a retainer.
We also do a flat fee model in types of cases where both parties agreed on everything and want just to resolve it by court.
