We always recommend an initial meeting to gather facts and our Divorce Lawyer will give you the various options that are available to you, at this time.
The negotiations between a couple can be fraught with angst, you may need to sort out visitation rights to a child and regardless what the situation of the marriage breakdown is, both parties can become easily infuriated.
