The goal for most people going through a separation or divorce is to resolve the matter quickly and effectively. While this most often means working out the terms of the separation between the parties without the need for contested litigation, family law matters are commonly driven by emotion. Many couples find it difficult to work out the terms of their separation agreement without the help of a neutral third party. However, with the right lawyer, it is possible to settle some cases without the need to engage in a formal dispute resolution process such as arbitration or a court trial.
At Boulby Weinberg LLP, we will always aim to find an amicable settlement of your case whenever possible while protecting your rights and minimizing your obligations. Our family law lawyers will advocate for your interests in all negotiation discussions while ensuring you remain fully apprised on your rights and obligations under the law.
Negotiation is often the first step in a separation or divorce. At Boulby Weinberg LLP, we always strive to manage our clients’ matters in the most efficient way possible, in order to save our clients unnecessary stress and cost. While sometimes litigation or alternative dispute resolution methods can be necessary, negotiation is an excellent first step for parties who are able to enter into constructive discussions directly, or through their legal representatives. The benefits of negotiation include:
Many couples wishing to enter into a cohabitation, marriage or separation agreement will look to online templates, allowing them to create their own agreement without involving a lawyer. While this may seem like a good option to save money, it can end up costing parties dearly later on, if the agreement does not properly take their circumstances into account. We understand the desire to save time and money, especially at a time when finances are strained due to a breakdown of the relationship. However, we strongly advise couples to have a skilled family law lawyer draft their domestic agreements in order to ensure their rights are properly protected and nothing is left to chance that could result in an unpleasant surprise in the future.
This is especially true if there are any concerns regarding an imbalance in the power between the parties, or if there are concerns that one party has not been forthcoming regarding their financial position. A skilled lawyer will help to ensure complete financial disclosure of all debts and assets before an agreement is signed.
