Some people are able to agree matters directly, without involving lawyers, on some or all issues. We still strongly recommend that you seek legal advice in these circumstances.

Direct agreement

There is a significant risk that an agreement may not be upheld in the future, if both people have not been afforded the opportunity to take legal advice. We would therefore advise that you do so, to be sure you understand the full implications of any proposed agreement.

You can still agree matters directly without the need to involve a lawyer, then you can ask a lawyer to prepare a legal document confirming the agreement - by way of a Consent Order, Separation Agreement or Parenting Plan.
