1. DO YOUR RESEARCH
There are several ways that you can find a good Family Solicitor but one of the tried and tested ways is by personal recommendation either through family or friends. The internet can also be a great tool to help you find a solicitor. Most family law firms offer general advice via their website on the various areas of family law practice. This will help to give you some insight into how they will handle your case. If possible, it would be good to speak with a family solicitor to get an idea of how they would handle your case, their approach towards your matter and how at ease they have made you feel especially as family law can encompass quite highly charged emotions. Following this initial conversation, you might request a full consultation where they can offer you more tailored advice. At Glazer Delmar we offer a fixed fee one hour consultation where we advise on the next steps in your matter, prospects of success and any other available options.
When looking for a Family Solicitor it is important that you are aware of the potential costs involved in seeing your matter through from start to finish as a family matter can be expensive particularly if court litigation is involved. Your Family Solicitor will often be able to provide you with a cost estimate depending on your current circumstances and the course of action that you wish to pursue. In some cases, you may be unaware of the alternative forms of dispute resolution available to you which are often a fraction of the price of court litigation. Here at Glazer Delmar, we aim to resolve your matter in a way that will save you both cost and time.
3. ANALYSE THEIR APPROACH
When looking for a Family solicitor it is important to analyse their approach to your matter. You may find that one firm of solicitors places a stronger emphasis on court proceedings in resolving family matters, whereas another may place a greater emphasis on more amicable resolution methods such as mediation or solicitor negotiation. It is vital that your solicitor’s approach is in line with your intended objective as family matters can be very sensitive. Here at Glazer Delmar, pursuing an amicable resolution is always our starting point particularly where children are involved, however we are hands-on when court action seems unavoidable from the onset.
