Family Law & Mediation Services – What We Do

Family Law Matters

Many people are confused about the divorce/dissolution process. It is natural to be stressed at the end of a relationship and to feel apprehensive about what may lie ahead. The actual act of divorce/dissolution, to end a marriage/civil partnership, can be stressful, costly and lengthy. However, there are ways in which you can minimise the stress, cost and time involved.

Dispute Resolution

There are a number of ways which we can help you resolve family law disputes without having to go to court. These include: mediation, collaborative law, solicitor led negotiation and family arbitration.

Financial Matters

Financial matters are complex so we would strongly advise you to consult with us to understand the specifics of your own particular circumstances.

Going to court to get a Child Arrangements order to determine who your child lives with and who they spend time with should be a last resort.
