Alternative Dispute Resolution

Family disputes can be very acrimonious and painful so it is no surprise that getting divorced or separating from your partner is one of the most stressful things that you can do in your life. You may be having difficulty coming to terms with the breakup of the relationship. You will have worries about the finances and the children issues. With emotions often running high at the outset it is no wonder that so many cases end up at court and the issues between you inflamed.

The reality is that whilst the court process may be invaluable in some circumstances, it does not remove the stress and can end up being a more costly alternative.

It is understandable, therefore, that you may not know which way to turn and feel overwhelmed by the whole thing.

Nowadays, clients are even keener to find cost effective ways of dealing with their disputes and, as a result, more are considering alternative ways to resolve their differences and are turning to Mediation and Collaborative Law.
