All of our Legally Aided Work is charged in accordance with The Community Legal Service (Funding) (Amendment No.2) Order 2011, which came into force in October 2011. The Legal Services Commission refuse to accept 'fixed fee' invoices for process serving work, and our fees are therefore charged in accordance with their Expert Fees & Rates as detailed in this Order.
This therefore means all Legally Aided work is invoiced on a time and mileage basis.
As a result of this Order, we are unable to accept instructions to effect service outside of the Midlands area, but are happy to provide you with details of agents who can assist if we are unable.
For more information, please call us on 01543 888218. We are happy to undertake urgent instructions and can arrange for collection of paperwork from your office or the local Court when required.
Please note it is your responsibility to advise us that a matter is legally aided when calling with instructions. Under normal circumstances our work is undertaken on a fixed fee basis, and invoices cannot be amended after the work has been completed should you fail to advise the matter was legally aided when instructing.
