No-one gets married planning on getting divorced. However, divorces do happen and at this critical time of life it pays to have your divorce handled by a divorce attorney who is excellent in both law and empathy.
We understand that divorce proceedings stem from a breakdown of relationship where there is often a high amount conflict and stress. The last thing that divorcing couples need is for the lawyers to add to this stress.
We endeavour to ensure that you will not get caught up in long drawn out litigation that may end up costing you an arm and a leg with, often, very little to show for the trouble. We seek to add value by ensuring that the proceedings run as smoothly and expeditiously as possible, taking into account the needs of our clients and where there are children, their needs too. Mediation should always be considered as a serious option in family disputes and divorces. Mediation may work very well in combination with the normal litigation process of divorce, with certain issues being referred to mediation.
