Amicable resolution (consent orders)

Family law isn’t all conflict and expense. Many couples come to us having had a sensible discussion with their partner, wanting simply to formalise a deal they have already agreed, or get advice to make sure that they have not agreed to something outside the bounds of reasonableness.

Often we find that clients will come to us for a consultation and armed with that useful information, will be able to sit down, have a conversation, and come to a deal that makes everybody happy that they avoided a fight.

If that occurs, we have expertise in turning your agreement into a parenting plan, a financial agreement, or submitting the deal to the Courts in a set of Consent Orders, for the ultimate in certainty and predictability.

This process can be relatively inexpensive and follow a predictable path, giving you a route out of a precarious financial position in just a few months. Contact us now to discuss whether you might be able to avoid a lot of difficulty with our early intervention advice.
