Our first consultation is a no obligation discussion and this time is used to understand the basics of the relationship and to ascertain likely outcomes. There is no obligation to continue.

It is important for you to “reality check” to ensure you have realistic expectations about what you can expect from your divorce / property settlement. All the answers to your questions are in our FAQs.

Our Family Lawyer Services:
