Clients often come to us for initial advice about a divorce expecting the absolute worst. Think The First Wives Club, Kramer vs. Kramer … McCartney v Mills.
It is certainly the case that, years ago, some solicitors could turn a straightforward divorce into a full-on warzone, with letters going backward and forwards at the cost of six minutes per page on an hourly rate basis and the case ultimately being dragged all the way to a final hearing when it should have settled far quicker, and outside of court.
Thankfully, those days are behind us.
Conflict Only Helps Solicitors
One day, the lawyers will be gone and you will be left facing the future on your own. We do not want our clients to be left in a situation where they are unable to have a sensible discussion with their ex-partner about the children, or where they feel they would rather stay single for the rest of their lives than risk going through a separation ever again.
Using Resolution Instead
For that reason, all of our family law solicitors are members of Resolution which means they follow a Code of Practice that encourages matters to be dealt with amicably and in a non-confrontational manner.
Not only does this help keep your costs down, but it also puts you in the best position possible to move on with your life.
