Unbundling Family Legal Services Toolkit

Ursula Rice and Mena Ruparel

With significant changes to public funding and the rise of litigants in person, many practitioners are looking to provide services on a ‘pay as you go’ or ‘fixed fee’ basis for discrete or separate pieces of work. ‘Unbundling’ is an approach whereby the solicitor and client agree which parts of the process the client can undertake without assistance, and which parts they will require some input from a solicitor. This approach is growing in the area of family law.
