First Consultation

Your first consultation is when we discuss your case in detail. It’s an opportunity for you to share your concerns, ask any questions and provide important information and paperwork which we may need to prepare your case. It is not the same as your free 15 minute consultation. The following information can help you to prepare for the meeting:

E

The meeting can be held in person, by phone or video call - it's your choice.

E

Find any important paperwork before the meeting - for example, we will need a copy of your marriage certificate and the address of your husband or wife if you are filing for a divorce.

E

Write a list of your assets and liabilities - this will be needed for any divorce application or if you'd like us to prepare or update your will;

E

Following the meeting, we'll send you a summary of the call and ask you to complete our Client Care Letter. You will also be asked to provide proof of identity (see below). Again, our forms can be completed online, by post or in-person.
