when i went through court for child arrangement order, cost atleast £5000 as I used solicitor. if your on low income and get universal credit, you may be able to get legal aid, and then don’t have to pay for lawyer/legal fees.
It depends on the complexity of your case, my child arrangements order was very messy, my child was only a few weeks old when we started. My ex got legal aid so was happy to delay things and contest everything which cost me more money. We also had a fact find hearing which is very expensive. Luckily in the final order he has been identified as the perpetrator so will not be able to apply for legal aid again 🤞 he will back off now. The whole process from start to finish took 17months because of delays with Covid-19
my solicitor worked on the basis of credit in my account, so you would have to pay in advance and then work was done with those funds.
