A national awareness-raising week has been launched this week to promote the benefits of Alternative Dispute Resolution, or ADR, processes in family proceedings.
Resolution, the national organisation that represents family lawyers throughout England and Wales, is implementing a co-ordinated programme of activity throughout the country to promote public awareness of the alternative methods of dispute resolution available to divorcing or separating couples.
Resolution’s aim is to help publicise alternative non-court based options and to promote the positive role that mediation, collaborative law, arbitration and other dispute resolution solutions can play in divorce and separation.
Our family team is committed to finding outcomes that, where appropriate, are agreed between couples themselves without court intervention and has lawyers trained in mediation and collaborative law who are skilled in recognising which processes are right for individual clients. Our family team offers a free initial meeting to potential new clients to discuss their individual situation, including which processes might be most suitable for them and their family.
For more information or advice on the role of non-court based dispute resolution solutions in family proceedings or to arrange an initial meeting please contact a member of our Family team.
