Such advice will be given during the course of the first interview.
We shall also discuss with you the various options available to you to resolve your matter. You then have the opportunity of considering such advice and to consider how you wish to proceed. Some of our clients are then able to attempt to try to resolve issues directly with the other party. However, we strongly advise that the correct legal documents are prepared to finalise any such agreements between the parties.
We can assist in such discussions with your partner and if you need the assistance of other professionals such as accountants (if there is an issue as to the value of companies or other financial issues) we can assist you with the appropriate questions you need to ask them in order to progress your matter.
Further professionals such as valuers, counsellors and so on may be necessary and we will assist you in this process. You will leave the initial appointment with clear and informed advice and options available to you so that you can make an informed decision as to how to proceed towards a property settlement and decisions about your children’s welfare.
