Stowe Family Law Settlements in Manchester and Cheshire
Our partner firm, Stowe Family Law Settlements, also has an office in Hale. It is dedicated to helping couples and families whose relationships have broken down, but who wish to avoid protracted and expensive courtroom battles. What sets the practice apart is the way in which it combines mediation with family law expertise. It is staffed by a nine-strong team of “lawyer mediators”: trained family mediators who are also qualified and highly experienced family lawyers.
The lawyer mediators at Stowe Family Law Settlements are able to assist with a range of legal disputes, including divorce and separation agreements, cohabitation agreements, child residence and contact disputes, grandparents’ rights and prenuptial agreements. This innovative form of dispute resolution was once little-known in the UK, but is expected to increase in popularity because with one lawyer instead of two, the legal fees are often lower. Couples are also able to maintain their privacy, because there are no court judgements to be made public.
