I am going through a separation and I was told that consulting a family lawyer will be very expensive. Is this true?

No. We have all heard the horror stories about people being “taken to the cleaners” by their lawyers.  The reality today is that the vast majority of family law lawyers recommend a “settlement-first” approach to their clients. You may be surprised at how affordable it can be for your lawyer to negotiate an out-of-court settlement on your behalf. If you meet with a lawyer who recommends starting a court battle against your former spouse, without first presenting the idea of a settlement, you should find a new lawyer.
