We appreciate that coping with the process of separation and divorce is emotionally one of the hardest things you will ever experience. The implications such as the effects of divorce on children and resolution of financial issues are additional concerns that we will seek to prevent.

We understand that you want to do all you can to prevent your children from suffering as a result of your divorce or separation. We always place children at the heart of everything we do – and that the more positive the relationship you have following divorce, the better it is for the children. That is why we firmly believe that the key to reaching a positive settlement is through maintaining a civilised relationship between all parties. We always aim to keep conflict to a minimum for a smoother path to resolution.

We promise our clients the utmost sensitivity and discretion when handling the interests of children. We will provide you with emotional support and expert legal advice to help you establish financial, living and contact arrangements (formerly known as child support, access and custody) ideally outside of the Court. The use of negotiation techniques from our expert lawyers is often the key to a satisfactory conclusion for all involved. We are also well-versed on foreign and cross-jurisdictional divorce – as well as dealing with overseas assets. Whatever your family circumstances, our lawyers can help.

Divorce: The Negotiation Process

We are able to use a collaborative process to resolve family disputes or come to an agreement on a family arrangement, because not only is this the most cost-effective option for you, it also gives you a better chance to maintain or develop a good relationship with your ex-partner in the future. Instead of conducting negotiations between you and your partner by letter or phone, you meet (alongside your solicitor) to work things out together. In rare circumstances, however, a client may require court action. In these instances, we will act speedily to ensure the best solution for everyone involved.
