Legal costs can be a big concern for many people. It can be hard to know how much to expect to pay and make choices about the price of a legal service. Legal Choices
 recommends taking some time if possible to budget and plan out how you will pay your legal costs, and when you will need to pay them.

The Money Advice Service gives independent and unbiased advice about money matters, and has a range of free tools like budget planners that can help you.

Their website includes tips on managing finances, getting the most for your money, and dealing with life's events. If you face a legal issue it is worth checking their life guides to get advice about staying in control of the financial aspects of the situation.

You can email, call, or arrange a face-to-face meeting with the Money Advice Service to discuss your situation - take a look at the Money Advice Service website for more information.
