Moving past separation

What are your options?

After separation, you need to make sure that the path you choose is right for you, and your family. It is essential that you receive the right legal advice as to your options.  The wrong path may gravely hurt your children’s psychological well being and cost money.  It is true to say that extending the conflict between parents is what can damage children – not the fact that parents are separating.

If you do not have children, then the path you choose will be critical to how quickly you recover from separation both psychologically and financially. Even if you are the one who has chosen to leave, we recognise the enormous emotional upheaval that separation brings to your life.

Counsel Family Lawyers have a strong commitment to all forms of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR), and can advise you on which method of dispute resolution might best suit your needs.  We also recognise that sometimes Court is inevitable and our role is then to be your strongest advocate, provide on going legal advice and ensure what is important to you is put to the Court.

Your wants and needs become the main focus in all our work with you.
