Divorce Fixed Fees – by PKWA Law

For many years, PKWA Law has provided affordable family law and divorce services to Singaporeans and PRs. We have helped many clients go through the divorce process with confidence and peace of mind that their legal fees are fixed, clear and transparent.

At PKWA Law, we want you to have the peace of mind that your divorce lawyer fees are fixed from the beginning – no extra or hidden charges.  PKWA LAW has been offering Divorce Fixed Fees to clients for many years.

Mr Lim Chong Boon, Head of Family Law at PKWA Law explains:

“Many people worry about seeing a lawyer because of the cost, so our scheme is designed to give clients peace of mind, clarity and transparency on costs from the outset. With our Divorce Fixed Fees, clients know that that there are no “hidden extras” and that they will receive high quality legal advice for an agreed and reasonable cost.

Our family and divorce law clients not only get access to affordable legal representation where fees are fixed, they also get access to quality divorce lawyers who are consistently named as leading family and divorce lawyers by respected legal publications. It’s a win-win for the clients.”

Why we came up with Divorce Fixed Fees

 .

Fixed fees vs. hourly-based fees – a comparison:

  1. With divorce fixed fees, you know the price in advance – with hourly based fees, you do not know what your total fee will be.

     .

  2. The traditional way to bill clients is on an hourly basis. With divorce fixed fees, you agree on the divorce fees right from the beginning.

     .

  3. Family Law lawyers have always charged by the hour. That is the ‘traditional’ way and has been for many years. Lawyers do not like a fixed fee structure because they have no control if the case ‘over-runs’ or turns very complicated. Lawyers have thus always preferred charging by the hour.

     .

  4. For almost all family law services, you will not know exactly how much your fees will cost. Lawyers can tell you their hourly rates, but to be fair, they also won’t know how long they will need to do the job. Your lawyer can charge you for each phone call, each meeting or simply waiting in court for your case to be heard. In short, if you are billed on an hourly basis, you won’t know the total price until the whole process is complete. In many cases, clients run out of money half-way through the case.

     .

  5. With an hourly-based fee arrangement, the longer your divorce case takes, the higher the fee.

     .

  6. On the other hand, with our Divorce Fixed Fees, we agree the fees with you right from the outset. You won’t be charged for every minute we spend on the phone or every document that we read. You are charged only the agreed fee for the stage of work that is being done. You won’t get any nasty surprises in the mail at the end of each month telling you how many hours you have to pay for – because the price is already agreed.
