We tell our clients that the best solution is always to settle amicably. First of all, settling will certainly minimize your legal fees. Secondly, you will reach a solution together that you have made, rather than have a decision made by a judge who has never met you and/or your children before the trial. Even if you have gone through lengthy litigation thus far, it is never too late to find a solution. We always encourage settlement, at all stages of a file.
