Mediation is a way of resolving issues directly with the help of a mediator. Our mediators are also family lawyers and so have a specialised knowledge of the issues involved.
Collaborative law, an alternative to mediation, is another way in which a separating couple can resolve issues without the need for court proceedings. It is based upon a series of round table meetings involving you, your former partner and your respective lawyers.
Alternatives to Litigation
Going through litigation and the court system is not always the best route for everyone faced with divorce or separation. We can guide you through alternatives to going through court such as mediation, collaborative law and arbitration.
