Before you file any Court documents, have you fulfilled your duty to confer?
Save for urgent injunctions, recovery orders and divorce applications, the majority of Family Law matters require the parties to first confer and streamline the issues at hand before filing a family court application. If the parties to a proceeding fail to streamline the issues at hand, the Court is likely to remit the application or adjourn the matter in order for the parties to attend to mediation or alternate dispute resolution.
In Property and Financial matters, the parties must fulfil pre-action procedures. This should involve the exchange of disclosure in order to establish an asset and liability schedule. The parties should ideally identify the issues in contention and the issues that can be agreed. Whilst this appear to be a strenuous exercise, it is a beneficial step to prevent a party from resiling from a legal position. At the very least, it will be clear to the Court that a party resiled from their legal position.
We can assist you on the “get go” to streamline the issues at hand in order to minimize any litigious costs. We are a full-service law firm that can meet your legal needs in drafting Family Court applications and appearing at the Family Court.
