If you struggle to agree on issues arising from a separation, such as finances, property and child arrangements, mediation can be a very effective process.
It involves you both working with a mediator to have an open and honest dialogue to understand the issues on both sides and work together to reach an agreement that can be converted into a legally binding document by a solicitor if required.
Mediation is a more cost-effective and quicker process than the traditional solicitor-led negotiations and litigation/court-based applications. It also helps to reduce stress and anxiety and build a more positive relationship to help families move forward.
At Stowe, a number of our lawyers are trained and practising mediators, and we have a nationwide network of other professional mediators who can support you in this area. Sessions can be held virtually via video calls.
