It goes without saying, but often its the case that you’re going to save yourself a whole lot of money, stress and pain if you and your partner or ex-partner can resolve your dispute without lawyers and the Court having to weigh into it.

The Court itself recognises this and this is why they have pre-action procedures. The whole motivation with pre-action procedures is to simply get you and your spouse around a table to try and sought things out. Now, that’s doesn’t necessarily mean talk about getting back together, although it can, but its essentially about finding agreement on the things that count.

There are some exception where the Court doesn’t consider it necessary for pre-action procedures and that’s largely to do with the existence of family violence, or a sense of urgency to get the matter before the Court.

In such matters, its best to be guided by good, reputable legal advice. We can help.
