When you are going through a relationship breakdown, it can be difficult to know who to turn to and it is not always easy or appropriate to talk to friends or family. We provide a safe, confidential and non-judgemental environment for you to share your thoughts and feelings and get answers to the many questions you will have. Our clients can talk freely about their situation in a totally relaxed environment.
After the Initial FREE Consultation, to ensure you get the most out of the First Meeting, it’s useful to make a written note of any questions and issues you’d like to discuss with us.
The Initial Consultation is carried out face-to-face, phone or Zoom and is an ideal opportunity for you to find out how DK Divorce Consultants can help you.
During this informal discussion we will explain how we operate and work with clients. We will also explain our charges and how this can save you considerably compared to using a solicitor
The First Meeting is 2 hours and is carried out face-to-face, Zoom or phone which should be plenty of time to cover your urgent questions/concerns. Additional time after the 2hrs is charged at our hourly rate.
Our meeting starts with us collecting some background information about you and your situation.
With a good understanding of your situation, we can provide answers to your questions based on your specific circumstances.
Family breakdown is a difficult time, and you will probably have lots of questions you want to ask about your situation. Many new clients use the First Meeting as a fact-finding exercise and opportunity to collect the relevant information needed to help them understand more about their options to help them make informed decisions about their situation.
Whilst we don’t provide formal legal advice (your solicitor does that), we can help explain legal information and processes. It’s not just the information to answer your questions that you may find helpful but also some guidance on how best to approach your situation.
How we approach things can make a real difference to how smoothly matters progress. This is especially important when you present ideas for your financial settlement as this will ultimately determine your financial lifestyle after divorce
At the end of the First Meeting, we will pull together everything we have discussed so we can agree on a simple Action Plan and what to do next. This isn’t anything to worry about and there is no pressure whatsoever to have made any decisions or take any big actions. It may just involve us emailing you helpful information on a topic we have spoken about and/or giving you time to think about something we will discuss next time we meet or speak.
We will send/email you additional information, links, etc. as discussed as an integral part of our Action Plan. (Please note that the cost for this falls outside the initial 2hr meeting charge). Our next call/meeting will then be arranged as part of our Action Plan, which will give you plenty of time to prepare; so we can follow on from our discussions at the first meeting.
