The first consultation is focused on discussing the specifics of your family issue to understand your case from the legal aspect.
In case of a separation, you must fill out a number of court forms and give them to your partner to start a court case. Our lawyers will help you prepare your application.
After submitting the forms, the court will issue documents that you will give to your partner to inform them that you have started a case against them. This is called serving the application, and our lawyers can do this on your behalf.
The next step is to go to the court to file the documents in your court file. We will accompany you to the court to ensure that the paperwork is complete.
If your partner files their document in response to yours (whether they agree, disagree or make new claims), we will review the respondent’s claims to decide the course of action in that regard.
Once all documents are reviewed, we sit with you to prepare a reply. This is an opportunity for you to comment on any new issues your partner raises and make new claims.
If you and your partner mostly agree on all points, we prepare a separation agreement to outline how you and your partner will deal with your issues.
Once you and your partner have signed the agreement, we file it with the court and keep you informed of updates.
If your partner disagreed with your claims, the process is different. You both go to a mandatory information program followed by the case conference to discuss your issues.
If the issue is not settled at the conference, your case will go to trial. We will represent you in court and share your side of the story in front of the judge while protecting your rights.
