What is ‘Settle by Sunday’?

‘Settle by Sunday’ is a robust and intensive settlement negotiation that occurs in a day or over a weekend, taking the mess and conflict out of a separation. We understand that a separation can be an emotionally and financially turbulent time; there is time to grieve and time taken off work to deal with re-establishing yourself.

We want to give you the best chance of settling your separation quickly, avoiding court and having the certainty about the cost of getting there.

Rather than fighting an acrimonious court battle, we think the best outcomes are ones where couples work together to maximise their collective and individual set of objectives and needs. As a team, Farrar Gesini Dunn and your chosen advisors then address those needs through the most appropriate process for your separation.

You could also jointly work with our experts such as the Business and Advisory Team in property matters and/or Child and Family specialists in children matters to help you reach the most optimal resolution.

You can choose! We offer a variety of models that we can tailor to your needs and/or budget, including:

  1. Family dispute resolution;
  2. Self-represented mediation;
  3. Lawyer-assisted mediation; or
  4. Collaboration.

Yes. Any agreement you reached will be formalised in a way that works for you. Whether that is an informal parenting agreement or parenting plan, Binding Financial Agreement or Consent Orders; we do it all!

We’re specialists – we only do what we are good at. We use a network of trusted referrers to help you, but we stick to what we’re best at.

We’re client focussed. We treat you like a person and not like a case. We want to discuss with you how we can best help you (like a doctor, not a mechanic).

We collaborate. We commit to helping you reach agreement without taking you to court.

We’re offering our clients fee flexibility. We tailor our service to meet your needs. We offer certainty about fees, all the time.
