On separating if you have decided not to instruct solicitors to deal with finances and/or children matters as you prefer to resolve issues arising out of your separation in an alternative manner we can offer our expert assistance and advice through Mediation.
If you choose to mediate you will be in control of the issues you want to discuss with the Mediator and the Mediator, who must remain impartial, will guide and assist you in considering optional ways of resolving those issues giving you legal information to help you both consider those options in a legal context.
Mediation can result in a settlement being reached in a timely and cost effective manner.
Should you wish to discuss the option of Mediation that please contact Victoria Poole our in-house specialist Resolution-trained Family Mediator who is a Resolution Accredited Specialist in Domestic Violence and Children Law (private) and an FMC Accredited Family Mediator (all issues).
