ENC Principles


We know families want things to be simple and organised.  We empower separating couples to find the right pathways to resolve family law matters.

The only way your family law matter is going to be settled smoothly and efficiently is if you and your spouse CONSENT (i.e., agree together).  This is PRINCIPLE #1.  This is true whether your matter is out-of-court or in-court.   For example, even if your matter is in-court, there will be many discussions before any order is made by a judge at a trial.  Getting to a trial almost always takes years, and there are many steps along the way where you are still expected to consent if you want to complete your separation/divorce.  Similarly, if your matter is out-of-court there will be many discussions before any domestic contract (separation agreement, prenuptial agreement, cohabitation agreement) is written and signed.  Almost all separating couples say they do not want to waste time and money.  However, almost all those same couples do not understand that they will need to consent to reach an agreement with their spouse.  If you want to waste your families’ time and resources (money, emotions) on arguing, then that is up to you.  There is no magic solution.   If you cannot CONSENT somewhere along the way then you and your spouse are going to have to spend a lot of time and resources to go through those steps.

On the other hand, if you DO want to save time and resources, then you DO have to CONSENT (i.e., agree together).  PRINCIPLE #2 is that consent always involves COMPROMISES.

The biggest secret to simplifying family law disputes, and PRINCIPLE #3 is that voluntary DISCLOSURE is mandatory for families to save time and family resources.

Now you are on the right pathway.  That is why Early Neutral Consultation®(Registered trademark of Family Law Pathways Ltd.) works.
