Most of our work as family lawyers involves the settlement of cases, outside the courtroom. Ninety five per cent (95%) of family law disputes are resolved before a full Court hearing. The Family Court system can be intimidating, costly, slow, complex and stressful. When measuring this against the benefits of settling outside Court there is no doubt that choosing to settle is a better choice for all.
The benefits for a client choosing to settle the case outside the courts far outweigh those gained from a lengthy court dispute. These benefits include:
1. It saves emotional stress. Although clients sometimes feel they have compromised and compromised again.
2. It saves money.
3. It is a way of having input into the outcome rather than a third party who does not know you making a decision.
4. It helps any parenting and future relationship. It is often mentioned that one day you will attend your child’s wedding or graduation.
5. It gives you control.
However, settling your case is not devoid of difficulty. At times, it can be a long and frustrating process. There may be days which require continuous legal advice and negotiation between parties. Although, this is time consuming - settling is still the best path to follow.
We always recommend settlement to our clients and we explain how those outcomes are reached.
We represent our clients so that they may reach an agreement that is fair and equitable at the earliest stage possible. We endeavour to implement an agreement that will be in place well into the future.
For a flat fee of $275.00 (incl. GST) we offer clients an initial consultation and a letter of advice.
