Since the 6 April 2011, all separating couples who wish to commence court proceedings to resolve issues concerning finances or children must first consider whether mediation would be an appropriate way of settling their dispute.
However, it is not necessary to engage a solicitor before involving a mediator and mediation can be used before legal proceedings are even contemplated.
Clarke Willmott offer mediation (along with other methods of out of court resolution such as collaborative law) as a means of resolving difficult issues which couples face when separating.
We believe that mediation works best when it is conducted by a mediator who is also a specialist family lawyer as the outcomes achieved are more likely to be workable.
