Mediation helps separating couples work out solutions to financial and child related issues. Lawyer Mediators are impartial and do not act for either party but are instructed jointly. They are solicitors who have combined many years of Family Law experience with intensive mediation skills training. This combination of practical experience and legal knowledge, together with an empathetic approach, makes Lawyer Mediators ideally equipped to deal with all issues which might arise.
You are in control of the process and outcome as you decide on the solution. Mediation is often less stressful and less expensive than traditional negotiation or going to court.
