What to expect when you engage Bespoke Family Lawyers

May 04, 2022

When it comes to separation, trying to piece together what to do and when can be an overwhelming process. 

If you’re feeling uncomfortable or even a little daunted by the idea of talking to a divorce lawyer to help you through your separation, this blog is for you. 

Allow our founder, Amy Sanders-Robbins, to explain what happens when you reach out to Bespoke Family Lawyers. We promise it’s nowhere near as scary as you think.

What is a clarity call?

When you get in touch with Bespoke Family Lawyers, our first conversation will be a clarity call – this is a 30-minute phone or video call that allows us to get to know you so we can understand where you’re at in your separation journey and let you know how we can support you. 

What information do I need to bring to the clarity call?

If you’re stressed about getting a handle on all of your finances and assets before approaching us, take a deep breath out because we don’t need to know everything about you to understand your circumstances.

A clarity call with us is more about getting to know each other, so having all of your information ready isn’t necessary.  

As we want you to get the most out of this call, we suggest that you have 2 to 3 questions about what’s causing you the biggest concern or stress for us to go through together. 

If you can provide us with an overview of your financial situation, that’s great, as it will allow us to better understand your circumstances. But it’s not a deal-breaker for having an initial conversation with us. We know getting your head around these details can be tricky, that’s why we’re here to help you do it.

What happens after my clarity call? Do I have to move forward?

After your clarity call we’ll be in contact via email, recapping what we discussed and the next steps available to you. We’ll also send you a bunch of helpful (and free) resources to help you in your journey. 

If you feel as though you’re ready to continue with the process with Bespoke, you can book in for your first strategy session, which is where our friendly team of divorce lawyers will give you more detailed advice about your options and start to come up with a plan

Oftentimes, a clarity call can help you decide whether you’re ready to embark on the journey of financially and legally disentangling from the relationship, or whether you may need a little more time to get your ducks in a row. There’s no pressure to continue with us, either way! 

When is the right time to contact a divorce lawyer about my separation?

Everyone responds differently to the separation process. Some want to engage a divorce lawyer straight away, and others take a little bit longer before they feel ready.

We recommend that even if you’re not ready to start the process, there’s benefit to understanding the legal process and what it means for you as this can be an important part of knowing your options and what steps you take and when. 

In short, the earlier you understand the process and your options, the clearer you can be on what direction you want to take to rebuild your life and move forward.  When you decide you’re ready to make a plan, but need some friendly and expert advice, we’ll be here to help.

What’s unique about Bespoke Family Lawyers?

As our name suggests, our approach to family law is unique depending on who we’re speaking to and what their situation entails. We know the end of a relationship is messy, complex, and takes time to manage – which is why we view separation and divorce as a life event that requires a people-focused approach. Not as a legal problem to be solved. 

We know that what you’re going through is one of the hardest, if not the hardest, time in a person’s life. Our approach is simple: we support you with kindness and empathy and get the work done confidently and clearly, using our creativity and legal expertise.

We’re professionals, but we always lead with our passion for helping families to recover, rebuild and move forward into the next joy-filled chapter of their lives. Want to know more about us? You can find out more here.
