Pitfalls of using online divorce petition
In family disputes, where possible and practical, we counsel the use of alternative dispute resolution as an alternative to the court system.
Mediation is when an independent third party is brought into a dispute to help both sides come to an agreement.
Our Family law team include trained mediators who can help resolve issues such as:
- the practicalities of separation, where each of you will live, how you will tell the children, how the bills will be paid.
- arrangements for children, for example, when will each of you see the children.
- the financial arrangements for any business, pensions and debts.
- any other issues which either person may raise.
Mediation provides a professional and supportive forum in which to address these sensitive issues. As part of our initial discussion with you we will advise you about the suitability of mediation for your particular circumstances.
"Thanks for all your support pre mediation and attempts to mediate. I found your service extremely professional both in terms of provision of information and the manner in which the actual mediation session was conducted."
"The team brings just the right mix of empathy and professionalism to their dealings with clients."
"There is a depth to the team that means they are always able to provide solutions."
