Resolution Together

Resolution Together is a ground-breaking service offered by Walker Family Law, where a single lawyer assists a couple in resolving their family law issues. This innovative approach promotes cooperation, as both parties receive legal advice simultaneously, facilitated by an experienced lawyer. By eliminating the adversarial nature of separate legal counsel, Resolution Together encourages an amicable and equitable resolution tailored to the couple’s specific needs, avoiding costly court battles.

One couple, using one lawyer

Resolution Together is a new, revolutionary service offered by Walker Family Law. Hiring a single lawyer, together, enables a couple to develop a way to resolve their issues, with both parties receiving advice at the same time with a qualified and experienced lawyer facilitating discussions and negotiations. This supports a mutually amicable and fair method to finding a solution that works for everyone.

We are excited to be one of the first firms in the country to offer this innovative approach to our clients, providing legal advice and assistance to those going through separation, without resorting to a court-based battle with their former partner.

How does Resolution Together work?

Resolution Together is designed to provide couples with legal advice at the same time by the same lawyer, allowing them to work together harmoniously to resolve issues that arise during a separation. This approach eliminates a sense of competition that can surface when each person receives separate legal advice.

Initially, the couple can have a joint meeting, which must be followed by individual assessment meetings to determine the suitability of Resolution Together for their case. In financial cases, once the assessment meetings are complete, the couple will share all relevant financial information with their lawyer and each other. Then subsequent meetings will be tailored to the couple’s specific needs and concerns, with the flexibility to bring in additional expertise as needed, such as accountants, financial advisers, or pension experts.

At the heart of Resolution Together is a qualified and experienced lawyer who will facilitate discussions and negotiations between the couple. The meetings are entirely guided by the couple’s needs and designed to answer their specific questions.

Reaching workable solutions

One of the significant advantages of Resolution Together is that it is not just for divorce; any family dispute can be resolved using this approach. Unlike mediation, legal advice is available throughout, and unlike collaborative law, only one lawyer is needed.

Our team of Resolution Together trained lawyers can ensure your agreement meets court requirements and can help you obtain a Judge’s approval to finalise your case, giving you peace of mind. Additionally, you and your former partner remain in control of your case, and the timetable and structure of the meetings are designed by you.
