Lawyer negotiations

Lawyer negotiation can help you find the best way to resolve things for you and your family. Approaching your issue constructively could cost you less - emotionally and financially. If you can make a decision through negotiation it's likely to be better and longer lasting than if a court imposes a solution on you.

In this approach, you appoint a family lawyer who focuses on your interests and who negotiates with your partner’s lawyer. Outcomes often depend on what these lawyers expect would be the result of any eventual court process. Many cases reach a satisfactory conclusion without going to court when resolved using lawyer negotiation, which can be used alongside other processes such as mediation. Many people choose this approach because they want to be supported throughout the negotiation process.
