how

Advice

We help you by providing the advice you need to make the right decisions at the right time. The issues you face when you separate are complex – not only because you have to do things you have not done before, but also because at the same time as trying to face the issues, you are in the midst of huge emotional upheaval.

Today, there are various ways in which we can help you resolve the issues arising out of your separation. Some, like Collaborative Practice are new. Others, such as written or oral negotiations, have been around for a long time.

Each is very different, ranging from the costly and complex process of going to Court, to the simple but sometimes equally confronting process of sitting down by yourself with your former partner. We are trained in all of them and can assist you in whatever combination you wish to use to resolve your matter.

However, you need to have at hand the advice required at each and every stage of the process – not the least when you decide which process of resolution (or combination of processes) will work best for you. Should you try and sort it out initially one-on-one with your former spouse? If you did, would you know what to ask for? Will you feel better in that process knowing that, if that fails, you are aware of what the next step will be, so there are fewer surprises along the way?

Negotiation

The primary means most of our clients adopt to arrive at resolution either directly themselves with our advice or with us acting for them.

MORE…

Collaborative Practice

A structured interested based approach where co‑operation between lawyers is mandated in a series of round table conferences.

MORE…

Mediation

A structured negotiation event often over the course of an entire day with the assistance of a neutral third party like a retired judge or senior lawyer.

MORE…

Litigation

The option of last resort. Mostly used to motivate a settlement failing which a Judicial Officer will make a binding decision.
