Lawyer-assisted negotiation is the traditional approach to settlement. Lawyers may discuss the parties’ concerns and possible terms of settlement during a telephone appointment or written proposal or counsel may even schedule a face to face meeting to review information and settlement options together.
More often it involves the clients directly in these settlement meetings so information is reviewed and discussed together, interests of each party are explained and settlement options laid out.
The goal is to ensure that each party has all of the information they require to make decisions about their parenting and financial issues with their lawyer’s advice and advocacy.
