When a relationship breaks down most people understandably wish to avoid a protracted courtroom battle, which comes with a financial and emotional cost to both parties. Litigation in family law, like all forms of litigation, is not risk free and the court has a wide discretion. For this reason, we encourage clients to attempt to agree matters with our help, on a consensual basis, through negotiation where possible. If negotiation fails, other forms of alternative dispute resolution may assist in settling your case without the need to become involved in court proceedings. Experts in our team will guide you through the alternatives that are best suited to meet your objectives.
