Qualified up front family legal advice focusing on practical resolutions that can be achieved in a timely manner without the stress and expense of litigation.
How It Works
Each family law matter has its own set of circumstances and yours will be no different. We have long experience in managing your matter to a fair resolution so you can move on with your life as soon as possible.
Firstly, we offer a no obligation and no cost initial consultation to talk about what issues you face and how we can help. We will discuss your options and how you can achieve a prompt resolution while also detailing costs you will incur in achieving settlement of your matter. We understand the emotions involved and above all, the fear of the unknown that confronts everyone experiencing relationship breakdown.
Evidence and Information Gathering
Secondly, we gather all the evidence and information to support your case. We take detailed instructions from you to sort through what is relevant and prioritise the areas that need to be actioned first. Typically, this is an administrative process and we rely on you to gather as much information as you can to keep costs down.
Thirdly, we contact your former partner and any involved parties. Our goal here is not to stir up further emotion, we are here to help you resolved a problem and do so in a prompt and economical manner. We are resolute in the defence and prosecution of your interests and have a long experience in dealing with objectionable and difficult partners.
After a period disclosure from both sides, we aim to be in a position to make a proposal for settlement. We do not see the utility in engaging in lengthy negotiations of claim and counter claims and we encourage all parties to move to a mediation. Once we make a deal with the other side we formalise it by way of legally enforceable agreement or consent orders filed in court.
