BENEFITS VS RISKS


HISTORY AND TRADITION HAVE US HARD WIRED TO THINK THAT HIRING A LAWYER WILL PROTECT US AND PROVIDE BETTER RESULTS. THIS THINKING IS OUTDATED.

The first response to the information that “I am getting a divorce” is that “I need to protect myself”. While this response in of itself is not wrong, the action of hiring a lawyer for protection or to fight for your rights is outdated. The Canadian laws are quite fair by nature and so unlike the past when your outcome was based on the talent of your lawyer and the Judge you had that day, this is not the case now. The goal posts that you are arguing about with regards to Custody, Child and Spousal Support and Property are quite narrow and do not require tough natured lawyers to get you a “good deal”. Your focus needs to be on your children, protecting the wealth you have worked so hard to make, fair spousal and child support and a division of property that is based on the law and sets you up for future success and security. If your financial picture is complex that is even more of reason to use grounded financial experts to help negotiate your outcomes.

The old way of approaching matrimonial disputes is no longer appropriate or necessary.

    WHAT DOES IT COST?

     

    We usually charge you a flat fee or sometimes hourly is appropriate; which ever works for you. We base our flat fee on the complexity of your assets and the level of conflict. Our fee can range anywhere from a couple of thousand per person to over $10,000. We are committed to doing it right so that you are not left looking for another way to solve your issues.

    We are not the cheapest alternative but when it comes to this life changing situation, you should not sacrifice quality experience or expertise in the short term as it will cost you in the long run!

    Our process is less expensive than when you and your spouse hire lawyers. We will save you money and time because we drive the process and ensure that everyone is held on task and on time. You know where you are at and what the next steps will be so there are no surprises.

    The average divorce in Canada takes 5 years and can cost each person thousands to hundreds of thousands. This does not include the cost associated with loss of income/career or emotional loss.

    With Fairway we strive to have your file completed in 120 days from disclosure. We believe time is money.
