The Answers You Need
WHY CHOOSE THE EASY SEPARATION PROCESS?
The Easy Separation Process is designed to:
Minimise conflict and promote amicable relationships;
Resolve parenting and property issues in a short period of time;
Provide sound, practical legal advice from experienced solicitors;
Provide for fixed, affordable fees;
Formalise agreements in accordance with the Family Law Act; and
Keep separated parties out of the court system.
IS THIS PROCESS FOR ME?
The Easy Separation process is not for everyone. It is most suited to clients who:
Can still talk to each other
Both desire a fast and amicable resolution
Would prefer to spend their money on their children or their future rather than on paying expensive legal fees
Need some help to work through the process
Want to know “what’s fair and how do we do this?”
During the onboarding process, if we think that Easy Separations is not going to be the best fit for you, we will let you know that and will suggest alternative options.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN THE PARTICIPATION AGREEMENT?
Agreeing to commit to the Easy Separation Process requires you to:
Behave in a respectful manner towards each other;
Participate in joint meetings in an open, non-confrontational manner;
Exchange complete financial information;
Genuinely seek a fair resolution;
Maintain confidentiality throughout the process; and
Reach agreement without the threat of court proceedings.
WHAT IF I CAN'T REACH AGREEMENT?
If clients meet the above criteria, then it is unlikely that a settlement can’t be reached. However, if for some reason there is no final agreement, then Kym and Sharyn will refer both parties to other law firms if they wish to take the matter further. Neither Briese Lawyers nor Peace Talks Family Law & Mediation will represent either party in court proceedings. As full disclosure is exchanged as part of the Easy Separation process, the time and money spent on the process is time and money saved on the next stage.
THIS PROCESS SOUNDS EASY AND INEXPENSIVE. WHAT’S THE CATCH?
There is no catch. Easy Separations is born out of Kym and Sharyn’s selfish desire to feel good about what they do. Simple as that.
