- we will email you a questionnaire to complete and return. We need
to know as much as possible about the background to your case,
details of the children, information about the current housing and
school arrangements, a summary of the problems and issues you are
having and an idea of what you are trying to achieve.
4) Consultation scheduled: An assistant from the family law
department at Brethertons will call you to agree a convenient date

5) Preparation: Both you and the solicitor then prepare for
your consultation. The solicitor will review your questionnaire. You should prepare a list of questions that you
want to ask.
6) Consultation: At the appointed time the solicitor will
call you for your consultation. They will try to understand your
objectives (e.g. What level of contact are you looking for?). They will
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 practical working agreement might look like, and what your
options are for moving forward. This report will form a good basis
for you to start negotiations or to take court action.
