Lawyer negotiation is an option most common for separating couples when communication has broken down.  Many people assume that their only option is to engage a lawyer to undertake all of their negotiations and they become the by-standers in their future. Understandably, this conjures up many fears, including unnecessary delays, poor communication, increased conflict and of course, significant legal costs.  Our aim to is move you through this process in the most swift, amicable and cost effective way.  We may suggest moving towards mediation or a round table conference (with your partner and their lawyer) which shifts the focus towards potential settlement outcomes and away from those fears.  If we are able to resolve your matter reasonably quickly then this will be reflected in the cost. Talk to us about a fixed fee.

The court process is your last resort.  Unfortunately for some separating couples, court is an option they are forced into, especially when there is a high level of conflict and communication has completely broken down.  Whilst we have the necessary expertise in helping you with your court case, our aim is to get you through the process as quickly and cost effectively as possible. Damage may be limited with an early settlement agreement.  If resolution cannot be achieved in the early stages of the court process, those fears of unnecessary delays, poor communication, increased conflict and significant legal costs become a reality. The damage is further intensified by court imposed outcomes.   Given the complexities and potential unforeseen difficulties with the court process, it is by far the most expensive of your options.
