Resolution Together and joint legal advice for separating couples

Resolution Together (and other ‘one lawyer two clients’ services) enables a separating couple to approach their divorce together with the legal advice of one lawyer.

To pursue your divorce in this way, you and your ex need to be comfortable to discuss everything together with your jointly appointed lawyer, there must be no concern about controlling or abusive behaviour, and no known legal conflicts. Your lawyer will first meet you individually to establish your situation is suitable to proceed together  – they will immediately flag if you should instead seek individual legal advice.

You’ll then meet together with the lawyer who will provide joint advice to and your ex about all the decisions to be made around your finances and your children as you divorce.  At the end of this process, your lawyer will draw up the necessary legal agreement to formalise your joint decisions, there will be no need for you to attend court.
