Paying solicitor by installments

Is it possible to pay a Solicitor by instalments? The Bill is under €3,000.00. Thank you, (Wicklow)

It is possible if the Solicitor agrees -  why don’t you approach him or her and ask for a payment schedule.

If the Solicitor does not agree to your asking for credit it should be remembered that you may have already received generous credit facilities.

When a Solicitor takes a case he/she may wait until he end to be paid  (depending on the type of case) - these represent credit facilities already granted and that is usually why Solicitors ask for full payment of the entire bill at the conclusion of the case.

Ask your solicitor for terms but if you are making an offer my advice is to be realistic - an offer of €5.00 per week is unlikely to be accepted.
