Charles: any self employed person has the same overheads etc - some have far more in fact because there are more "materials" for their trade, and 40K is average for any professional training - most of the professions won't see near 250 an hour - again this isn't to say that you don't earn your cash, or couldn't earn more cash elesewhere, but it is a bank-breaking system to the vast majority of divorcing people at a time in their lives when
a) they can least afford it, b) are least able to see the wood for the trees emotionally and c) least able to communicate with the person they have to come to an agreement with.
Charles you are wrong about the insurance costs of scaffolders as they are by far and away one of the heftiest in the building business due to the very high risk of fatal accidents and then huge damages claims on the employer by the estate of the seriously injured or dead.
