Mediation is a voluntary process, involving an impartial mediator who helps the couple to reach agreement. Mediation sessions can cover the process of separation and divorce, resolving financial issues or issues concerning children. The mediator will normally suggest that legal advice is obtained and that legal advice should be used to support the process.
A number of our team are trained mediators and would be happy to discuss the process and the likely costs with you.
