Divorce and other family law disagreements can often be unnecessarily expensive and stressful if they reach the courtroom.
However, there are a number of options open to you to help you agree on the terms with each other in a calm and civilised way.
Taking a non-court dispute resolution (alternative dispute resolution or ADR) can reduce the time and cost for everyone and has other benefits such as avoidance of protracted court proceedings, help to avoid rifts developing between the parties, benefit future communication and relationships and have a far higher rate of success.
Ideally, both parties will work together to reach a resolution however if this is not possible, the options below can help.
However, sometimes there is no alternative and if it is not possible to agree on arrangements regarding your finances and the children, it will be necessary to go to court. Our specialist family lawyers will support you through that process.
