Whatever the value of assets involved, our policy is always to promote settlement following voluntary disclosure and negotiations where possible.
We discuss the best way forward in detail at the outset of your case. We approach each case differently but where possible agree the financial aspect of your divorce/dissolution through negotiation and reflect this in a consent order. We can support mediation or act on a collaborative basis. We find that an agreed solution is often the most cost effective and emotionally beneficial route.
If court proceedings are required then we will represent you thoughtfully and diligently. The court has a wide discretion to redistribute income and assets on marriage breakdown so it is never possible to predict precisely the award a court would order. To reduce costs and conflict it is vital that the issues are narrowed as much as possible, that a constructive approach is adopted and that a compromise is sought. We will not foster false hope nor unrealistic expectation and nor do we shy from giving honest advice even if when we know it will be unpalatable. We will keep you fully appraised of the costs of the proceedings and at all times keep in mind the costs compared to the benefits. Our aim is always to provide a cost-effective service.
