We’re not going to say we know how you feel. We don’t. But here’s where we think you might be at:
You’re trying to do the right thing
You want an outcome you think is fair
You don’t want to pay £250 per hour to get there
Above all, you are at no disadvantage for exploring Dialogue First at the suggestion of your separating/former partner. As an organisation, we are entirely impartial. But the lawyer we introduce you to is not. They are regulated to act in your best interests and have a duty of care to you and only you.
A child-first approach that combines dialogue with affordable legal advice. Take the opportunity if you can.
