• 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 solicitors are trained to assist with both family mediation and divorce mediation to resolve such issues 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.
