Telephone and Email Support
My application had previously been dismissed and I was losing hope and lacking the motivation to make progress. Jeff's direct and no-nonsense approach was invaluable throughout very complex and difficult proceedings. Even though we did not always agree he was able to see the best way forward and even gain the respect of the Judge. He was always calm, reliable, professional and reassuring when I needed it. I am now seeing my daughter regularly and am grateful to benefit from his experience.
We are able to provide you with a comprehensive telephone/Skype and email support throughout your family law proceedings or for periods you require it for a relatively inexpensive cost. It can be arranged as a small additional cost to a fixed fee we have arranged with you for an upcoming hearing perhaps.
Often matters might arise during family proceedings that you require some well informed and practical thoughts so you can make the best decision in the circumstances and/or respond appropriately to an event however minor.
Our McKenzie Friends can revert relatively quickly and provide you with an experienced view of the situation that will stand you in good stead when dealing with whatever may have come up. The reassurance and guidance from us that you are responding appropriately and by doing so demonstrating you are reasonable and measured will go a long way to persuade the court to look on you favourably.
Too many times parties show themselves in a poor light to the court and its officials by responding to matters that arise in what most people outside of the family court system may seem as common sense but is looked on as unhelpful by those who work in the system.
It can be immensely helpful to know that you are in the midst of what is a maelstrom of emotions for many on separation and divorce responding to issues in a balanced and measured way, supporting your argument why the court should follow your proposals rather than those opposing your aims.
Unfortunately too many people make the mistake of communicating in an unhelpful manner, often within lawyers letters which can be unnecessarily inflammatory and widen the gulf between the parties. No matter how your former partner may behave when communicating with you it is always wise to respond in a reasonable but assertive fashion. A war of words via lawyer letters or simply between the parties will be unlikely to help you persuade the court to favour you moving forward.
Our McKenzie Friends are skilled and practiced in ensuring with their advice you do not make matters worse or show yourself in a poor light to the court, whatever the provocation may be. It can be crucial to demonstrate over time to the court you are measured in your approach, we can help you achieve this.
