We also offer a mediation service for clients who would prefer to try and reach an amicable agreement together rather than entering into what could become protracted litigation. Mediation is a constructive approach to resolving the conflicts which arise from a separation. It can be a very useful way for some couples to sort out practical things when they split up, such as:
- Whether or not to divorce
- With whom the children are to live
- Contact arrangements between the children and the absent parent
- How to divide the assets, including the family home
- How to arrange financial support for family members
Mediation can save time and money because is enables you to reach an agreement rather than having a court order imposed upon you.
