family law negotiation

Everything About Negotiation

Sometimes former partners attempt to resolve disputes between themselves. This will usually work best if parties have a reasonably amicable relationship and can communicate about their issues directly.

Negotiations through solicitors — this is where each party engages their own solicitor to help them reach an agreement about their family law matter. In the process of lawyer negotiations, the negotiating is left to the lawyers and is usually done in the client’s absence. Clients meet privately with their lawyers through this process and the lawyers check in with the clients to keep them informed of the negotiations. Negotiations occur between the two lawyers through correspondence, exchanges of relevant information and may include one or more round table meetings.

This process may be a preferable option for those couples who are not comfortable to sit in the same room as their respective partner to negotiate a settlement.
