What Are The Options For Divorcing?

Whether you want us to negotiate on your behalf or represent you in Court we can help you make informed choices and will be with you every step of the way.

The services we offer:

Solicitor negotiation

Many cases are resolved by way of negotiation, either through correspondence, telephone calls or round table meetings. Our family team has extensive experience in resolving issues relating to children and financial matters, outside of Court. Round table meetings can take place with all parties in the same room, or across three rooms, each party being in a separate room with their solicitor and both solicitors negotiating in the third room.

Collaborative law

Collaborative law is an alternative to solicitor negotiation. The process involves a series of four way meetings with each party’s solicitor. At the start, the couple sign an agreement showing their commitment to the process. If an agreement is negotiated it can be submitted to the Court for approval. If no agreement is reached then the couple will be referred to different solicitors to commence court proceedings. The solicitor who negotiates on your behalf through the collaborative law procedure cannot represent you or advise you in Court.

Representation in Court

In some cases, there really is no alternative to making an application to the Court either in relation to financial matters or children issues arising from separation. Our family team has extensive experience in representation at Court. We will keep you informed throughout the process of the legal costs involved to help you make informed choices and will provide you with effective representation to achieve the best possible outcome for you and your children. We offer a range of payment options to help with your budget.
