also need to understand something about your ex: are they willing to
negotiate? are they likely to be reasonable? What do they want? You
will also have an opportunity to ask them some specific questions.
7) Report: After your consultation, your solicitor will write
a summary report including their legal opinion on: where you stand
legally, what a fair settlement might look like, and what your
