If you need help and support to resolve family disputes on separation or divorce, Whitehead Monckton offers expert family mediation services, an alternative to typical court proceedings which can often become a confrontational, and costly, legal process.
In family mediation, couples meet together with an agenda which is assisted by a neutral third party known as the ‘mediator.’ The mediator will help to find a sensible and practical solution that you both feel comfortable with and deem to be fair.
If you are considering divorce or separation we can act as an impartial mediator to sort out arrangements for the future by agreement. We can advise on a wide range of issues from how to divide assets and finances, to the living arrangements of children involved with divorce or separation.
We can help in all areas of family mediation, including:
- Future parenting arrangements including child custody, residency or contact arrangements
- Financial arrangements including child maintenance
- Arrangements for property, savings, debts, trusts and pensions
- Divorce arrangements
Our family mediation lawyers will act impartially and avoid any conflict of interest to ensure the fairest outcome is achieved for everyone involved, with particular attention to the futures of any children involved.
We will seek to come to a solution without the intervention from the courts, helping to avoid and prevent unnecessary disputes in divorce and separation.
As a neutral third party, our family mediation lawyers cannot give you advice other than information about the relevant law. If you feel you need legal advice during your mediation, you must seek guidance from your appointed solicitor.
