If only couples in family law disputes would sort out there issues themselves, is a statement I’ve heard from so many family lawyers.
Family disputes are emotionally-charged events for all involved and it’s invariably the case, that if all the stress associated can be shortened or minimised, then parties to the dispute may well be a whole lot better off.
Family Law Courts have always acknowledged that it is far better that couples resolve their own issues, as opposed to a Court making those decisions for them. Hence, there are numerous requirements that couples try a range of alternatives before the Court will weigh into the matter.
