Family Law and CourtJust because you have separated does not mean that you need to go to Court. In fact most lawyers would recommend that you do what you can to stay out of the Family Court system. There are so many options available to you, negotiation, mediation, collaboration. All of these are great tools to try and resolve your parenting and property issues without the involvement of the Courts.
