I am considering separating or have already separated. What are my options?
There are 6 different pathways that you can take to reach finalisation of your matter. Don’t be daunted by that. Having a choice allows you to take control of your future and live your best life.
The pathway you choose depends on your unique situation and the relationship you have with your former partner. For example, if you are both able to communicate with each other and you plan to stay friends after separation, you might consider reaching a settlement that is amicable, collaborative and takes into account both of your needs and wishes.
Alternatively, if you are not on speaking terms and you hold no faith in negotiating with your former partner, there may be ways to move forward without having to go directly down the Court route. We can help you decide.
We have included our downloadable Family Law Dispute Resolution Menu here. Take some time to consider what pathway you and your former partner could take to get a resolution and move on with your lives.
