Separating from a partner can be a stressful, complicated experience. It can be easy to get lost in small details which become blown out of proportion, and this can make it all the more difficult to reach an agreeable solution.
A collaborative approach to divorce opens doors which may previously have been locked – particularly with lines of communication between both parties. Our experienced Family Law team can provide you with a single lawyer to manage your separation together and achieve shared objectives without the associated costs. The team support you to reach a conclusion which meets both your needs. If you’re parents, we ensure we meet the needs of your children, too.
Unified in Separation (US) is a tailored legal service that fosters co-operation, respect and transparency throughout the process. It’s based on the ‘one couple, one lawyer’ framework created by Resolution – a community of family law professionals who work with families and individuals to resolve issues constructively. It follows the recent landmark reforms to divorce law which means that couples no longer have to blame each other during the process – known as ‘no-fault divorce’.
Our goal is to help you reach a mutually agreeable settlement with your partner which offers peace of mind while protecting both your interests. Couples using US will receive advice on a joint-beneficial basis to reach an agreement on one or all aspects of your separation – without the added expenses and pressures of going to court. However, it is not suitable for everyone and is very much case-specific.
Our team of expert family lawyers will carry out a full assessment of your situation to ensure there is no imbalance of power and your interests are aligned, and that you meet the criteria applicable to this service. Giving informed consent to disclose to each other all appropriate factual and financial information, if relevant, is essential as this will enable you to reach a joint decision. If you have any concerns about the other party or aren’t willing to negotiate, this service is not right for you.
As part of the service, your lawyer will provide specific, tailored legal advice and, if necessary, suggest additional expert input for you both as part of the team advising you.
If separation is inevitable, having an expert lawyer by your side who can provide guidance, advice – and, most importantly, understanding – is essential for a smooth process. If you’re ready to make the next step an amicable one, we’ll be with you both throughout.
