Today I have received a fee note for the counsel''s services (FDA) rendered in April this year. As the court left me with nothing, and I am the only working parent to my 5 year old daughter (her father is not paying any maintenance, I am repaying the debts for the legal fees, etc) I am unable to pay the outstanding sun in a lump sum.
Is it possible to write to the chambers and ask for a monthly installment plan? Has anyone had this experience?
I have no experience of this but I am sure that your first action should be to contact the chambers and explain the situation.
I am sure they would rather have the payment in instalments than not at all.
Some payment is better than no payment. Telephone counsel''s clerk or the fees clerk if there is one and explain your position and tell them you are making a payment straight away or on whatever date you can and ensure you are good for your word.
