Stowe Family Law regularly helps couples and families whose relationships have broken down, to avoid protracted and expensive courtroom battles, via mediation. The firms “lawyer mediators” are trained family mediators who are also qualified and highly experienced family lawyers.
The lawyer mediators at Stowe Family Law 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, has in recent years become more popular because legal fees are often lower with one lawyer instead of two. Couples are also able to maintain their privacy, because there are no court judgments to be made public.
