with us online or in person. You can book in a 15 minute Clarity Call with Anne-Marie, which is by phone or Skype and you can get information and gain some clarity on certain matters you may be unsure about.
It is the first step in our relationship with you but in no way commits you to going any further. You can book in a Clarity Call now.
If you feel you need further information and you want to discuss your matter with us in depth and get more information on the options available to you if you are considering separating or have separated from your partner, then it is a good idea to book in a Strategy Session with Anne Marie which will run for around 60 minutes.
You can attend this session alone or with your partner. This session is informative and you will get a good overview of the resolution pathways available to you.
with a mediator. If you and your partner are unable to reach an agreement and want to have the conversation and negotiate what you need to do to move forward, it is a good idea to schedule a meeting with a Mediator who will facilitate the conversation between you and your partner.
Mediation is a very empowering process that enables parties to work together to make their own decisions and they have control over the process. It is advisable to see a Mediator as soon as you and your partner are ready to have a discussion.
It may be a good idea to meet early with a Mediator and have a “Mini Mediation” to discuss short term arrangements regarding parenting and property matters.
Once these short terms arrangements are in place you and your partner can then schedule another Mediation session to discuss more long term arrangements.
Once you and your former partner have come to an agreement regarding parenting and property matters, each of you can meet with a lawyer and get the necessary legal advice.
After obtaining instructions from you and providing you with the necessary legal advice, the lawyer will begin creating a legally binding agreement incorporating what has been agreed to between you and your former partner. Alternatively the two of you can draft your own documents.
Once he has completed a draft agreement, the lawyer will forward it to you for your approval and comments. The draft agreement will then be sent off to your former partner’s lawyer for their input on the agreement.
You and your former partner may at this stage also want to get additional advice from your accountant, financial planner or counselor and have any advice received incorporated into the agreement.
Once you and your former partner are satisfied with all changes that have been made, the agreements will be signed by both parties.
After they are signed, the documents will have to be filed in court. The lawyers will attend to this and inform you both once the documents are filed and orders obtained from the court. Alternatively you and your partner can file the documents in court yourselves.
If you need to appear in court you will be informed by your lawyer but in most instances when the parties have reached an agreement, they do not have to go to court. The process of filing and obtaining final orders may take a few weeks to complete. This process has to be completed in order to finalise parenting and property arrangements between you and your former partner.
