Alternatively, a negotiated settlement by correspondence or a round-table settlement conference may be best for your matter. Each matter is unique and different personalities also suit different approaches. We can assist you in deciding which pathway or option is best for your family.

We are very proud of our record of resolving most matters without the need for the Court’s intervention.

Regardless of the course your matter takes, we will guide you through it with expertise and understanding – from the beginning and until your matter is resolved.
