There are clearly some situations where it is not possible to resolve matters out of court.
In these circumstances, we will advise you on your options in terms of a court application and will handle the process for you, where appropriate with the assistance of other professionals.
Whatever the nature of the court process, the court timetable is geared towards the resolution of issues at the earliest possible juncture and negotiations can continue alongside the process.
We will, however, represent you throughout the process and will, if necessary, represent you at any Final Hearing (should matters not prove capable of resolution) - although the vast majority of cases do not reach this stage.
We will discuss with you the best way to present your case and where appropriate will advise you as to the best choice of barrister, should we feel your case would benefit from the instruction of a barrister. We have close links with top barristers’ chambers both in London and regionally.
We set out below a brief summary of Financial Remedy proceedings upon divorce and in Children Act proceedings in cases involving arrangements for children on divorce or separation.
