Assisted DIY Separation - Oloan Lawyers

Who is  ONWARDS>>  good for?

The advantage of this pathway is that it is quick, cost effective and will hopefully lead to a more amicable long-term relationship between you and your former partner.  Look at it as a ‘get in – get out’ arrangement where you don’t have to spend too much time working with us but we’ll get the results you need to finalise your matter.

Who is ONWARDS>> not good for?

The disadvantage of this pathway is that you may not be aware of your legal position while you are negotiating and you may agree to something that is outside your range of entitlement or something that is impractical.  This service would not be suitable if there is a power imbalance between you and your former partner or you are unable to reach agreement without further assistance.
