Family Mediation

Helping you find a better solution

Experienced Family Mediation Solicitors

When a relationship breaks down, mediation between separated couples can be a much quicker and often cheaper way of finding common ground than the traditional Court process.

Mediation is voluntary but if you need to apply to the Court for help dealing with issues relating to financial settlement on divorce or children, attendance at a Mediation Information Assessment Meeting (MIAM) is compulsory in most circumstances.

Our specialist family mediation team are qualified solicitors and have years of experience of handling mediations and dealing with the relevant legal principles associated with financial settlement and children

They can guide you through the legal process and help find a tailored solution for you both minimising the financial and emotional impact of legal proceedings.
