Avoiding Court Solicitors based in Dublin City Centre

At Carmody Moran Solicitors Dublin we will meet you and discuss your concerns and your goals, and advise you on all of the options available to you.  Our lawyers are experienced negotiators and collaborative lawyers but they will equally support you through contested court proceedings an be ready to protect your best interests when litigation is necessary.

The key to avoiding lengthy contested Court proceedings is having available to you at the outset the knowledge of likely outcomes which enables you to make fully informed decisions at each step of the way. If both sides are expertly legally advised, the outcomes explained to both will be broadly similar, and having an informed position and knowledge of the realistic outcome of the situation (if it was to be determined by a Court) will bring aid in bringing a clear path to resolution for both parties.

At Carmody Moran our team of leading divorce lawyers and settlement solicitors are known for their compassionate and efficient nature when dealing with relationship breakdown and divorce. We’ll work closely with you to make sure the process is easy and clear, whilst putting you in the best possible position.

Getting advice at the earliest stage can be hugely beneficial. Having a conversation with our specialist divorce lawyers will help you understand your rights, where you stand and what you need to do.

Above all, at Carmody Moran Solicitors our family lawyers are commited to the ethicial practice of family law, cases that should not trouble the Court or put that additional stress on families should be resolved in the best interests of all of the concerned parties.Going to court can be highly stressful – at Carmody Moran Solicitors LLP we understand this and that exploring non adversarial resolutions is a priority. We are known for our genuine commitment to alternative dispute resolution options that can keep disputes out of protracted disputes and Court proceedings.


Will a Solicitor be able to negotiate a divorce for me?

Like most divorce lawyers, our expert family law solicitors typically spend a great deal of their time helping clients resolve their family law disputes without the need to attend court.

This is not because solicitors advise clients to “give in”, but because going to court in family disputes should always be the last option – not the first.

At Carmody Moran Solicitors LLP we believe passionately that agreed outcomes are better than unnecessary conflict and stress. Our expert solicitors have the ability to negotiate calmly and effectively on your behalf and this is a key factor in achieving successful and early resolution.

Sometimes, you and your partner may agree many of the issues, but there can be areas where you don’t see eye-to-eye or may require legal and financial review of issues, and may benefit from divorce negotiation. This can concern a range of issues, such as, the family home, the finances, financial support, family business or pensions.

Our expert solicitors can help you reach agreement without any contested hearings. Whether through correspondence, telephone calls, meetings with your partner’s solicitors, drafting documents or in court, you can be confident in our ability to negotiate effectively on your behalf.

Negotiation is about much more than knowing the law. It’s about really understanding what matters to you and having a clear picture of what you want to achieve. This is what you can expect from Carmody Moran Solicitors LLP.

What is Collaborative family law Ireland?

The partners at Carmody Moran Solicitors LLP are trained collaborative lawyers. Collaborative law is an alternative dispute resolution method with both parties having their solicitor present.
Collaborative law is a series of four-way meetings made up of you, your ex-partner and your respective solicitors. All present need to be committed to achieving the best outcome for the family – as opposed to the individual. If the settlement discussions breakdown the advisors agree to step out of representing the parties, such is the commitment to finding resolution.

Can a family law case settle out of Court

Out of court settlements

It is estimated that only approximately 10% of family law disputes in Ireland progress to a fully contested Court hearing before a Judge.

These figures demonstrate that many issues are decided earlier in the process when divorce applicants have sought legal advice and negotiated a separation agreement or gone through a judicial separation or another dispute resolution process. It also means that there is a certain amount of cases that are issued in Court and commenced in dispute, later resolved through agreement.

At Carmody Moran Solicitors LLP we have significant experience both within the Court process and ahead of any legal proceedings issuing, of negotiating and achieving agreements, settlements, and out of Court family law settlements.

Our expert family law solicitors are highly experienced in family law and best placed to advise you as to likely legal outcomes if your case proceeds to hearing, this makes our expertise invaluable when it comes to settlements and negotiations, we can advise you as to the flexible nature of family law, the family law principles that the Court will consider if a case goes to Court, likely potential outcomes, and we will guide, help and support you to reach the best resolutions for your circumstances.

We know that there is always a wider picture and we know from experience that it can be parental conflict rather than the divorce itself that can be most damaging for children. A court battle is stressful and nearly always increases that conflict and makes it much more difficult for parents to maintain the best relationship they can with their children during the divorce and in the years to come.

That is why our family law experts place such importance on reaching resolution, whether we are advising you on issues specifically relating to the children or financial consequences of separation.

It is why we place such importance on avoiding court, whether we’re advising you on issues specifically relating to the children or dealing with the financial consequences of your separation. It also goes without saying that avoiding Court, reduces costs, as well as stresses for both of the parties.

Our family law experts stand out from the crowd when it comes to helping you choose the approach that is best for you and your family. Sometimes that will need to be court, but we’ll do everything we can to reduce hostility during your divorce, encourage communication and get the right outcome for you.

There is no doubt a time and a place for court hearings and court rulings, but it should not be assumed that Court is the only option.

If your partner challenges your litigation in court, we know what rights you have to make a dispute and win. Divorce settlements can go on for a long time, especially if you have a high net worth – assets such as property, pensions, and businesses involved can be a long back and forth. We offer a lot of family law services, from cohabitation agreements to custody of child law – our team of family lawyers are experienced in all family law matters.

We recently purchased our house through Carmody Moran and they were great to deal with. They were there each step of the way and really helped close the purchase within a short time frame. Thanks for everything!
Carmody Moran performed the conveyancing for my apartment purchase. My solicitor Caila Ryan was extremely diligent and professional. She did a great job guiding me through the process and offering advice. I really appreciated all of the documentation she provide me with. I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
