We’ll have a brief discussion with you over the phone regarding your situation or any other concerns you may have. This will be followed by an initial consultation. This is your chance to tell us your story. We will listen to you and ask you some questions so that we can understand and advise you about any legal issues. We understand that it may be difficult for you to talk about all of the details that are unique to your situation, but the more details you can provide, the better we can understand how to help you. It can be helpful for you to bring some notes with you, including key dates, any information you feel is important as well as any questions that you might have. If your matter involves property and financial settlement, some notes regarding assets, debts and liabilities may be useful. For matters relating to children, we will need to know some basic information such as their full names and dates of birth. Further information about where they go to school, their interests, and any special needs they may have (such as medical assistance) will also be helpful. It helps to bring whatever you think might be useful to the initial consultation and we can decide on the day what is helpful and what is missing. Our goal is to ensure that you are better placed to meet the challenges you are facing at the end of your initial consultation, which you should plan to set aside around 1 to 2 hours for. You are of course welcome to bring along a support person if you feel that is necessary.
