Arbitration, helping your divorce go more smoothly
Arbitration is a useful tool to help resolve matters faster, confidentially and in a more relaxed and less formal setting than a court.
Divorce arbitration solicitors
For couples struggling to reach an agreement, arbitration is a useful and effective way to avoid time-consuming and expensive court battles.
Like a judge in court, a family arbitrator will ensure that relevant facts and evidence are collected and make a final and binding decision based on this information.
The difference is that you and your ex-partner can appoint an arbitrator of your choice, select the issues that need to be resolved, and have control over when and where the hearing takes place.
It can help couples agree on issues including child maintenance, division of assets, property issues following cohabitation, child arrangements – where they live, what time they spent with each parent and their upbringing.
At Stowe, a number of our lawyers are trained in family arbitration, and we have a nationwide network of other professionals who can support you in this area.
Hollie was amazing! She always made me feel at ease and comfortable when she was dealing with my divorce. Hollie always went above and beyond to make sure I was happy, and she took her time to get to know me and my children.

Lawyer: Paul Linsdell
I would like to thank Paul Linsdell and the team at Stowe Family Law for their care and compassion during my divorce proceedings on both child and financial matters. From my very first dealings with Paul I felt supported; his calm demeanour and pragmatic advice I had the upmost confidence in. I was guided through each step of the process and Paul really listened and understood my wants and needs. Whilst I hope to never have to go through such a personally difficult time again, I would recommend Stowe Family Law (Winchester) to anyone who finds themselves in a similar situation.

Lawyer: Jemma Slavin
I was advised to use Jemma Slavin at Stowe whilst going through an extremely difficult and lengthy divorce. Jemma was amazing. Jemma gave brilliant advice, was able to set my mind at ease when difficult situations arose and more than anything was totally approachable and available like a friend if ever I was struggling. My divorce was a very bitter one however I felt in completely safe hands and comforted by the fact that I knew I had the best representation I could get. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Jemma to anyone needing a family lawyer. I am out the other side now and cannot thank Jemma and her team enough for such great support, professionalism and basically getting me the result I hoped for.

Lawyer: Jason Stanley
I made an appointment with Stowe Family Law as I needed advice as I had recently separated from my husband. Initially I had a free telephone conversation with Jason Stanley one of the partners followed on by a free and informative consultation which lasted for over an hour. Jason was very professional and informative and immediately put me at ease. I gained a lot of information during this time. I have since appointed Jason as my solicitor where I have found him thorough and prompt when responding to queries and emails. I would definitely recommend Jason if you are seeking legal advice regarding divorce proceedings.
