Court Proceedings

If settlement has not been reached by negotiation even though an application has been made to Court, then a Financial Dispute Resolution hearing will be listed to take place. This hearing is to encourage discussion and negotiation between the parties with the guidance of the Court in the hope settlement can be achieved without the need for a final hearing where the Court would decide the outcome. This fixed fee covers representation of you at the hearing, which will include negotiations at Court and the preparation of any Consent Order to be approved if agreement is reached and the lawyer is ordered to by the Court.
