The family Court system is currently crippled by its backlog and there is therefore no better time to investigate the alternative options to Court, of which Family Mediation is one. Mediation can, for some couples, be an excellent way to achieve joint decision making about financial issues and arrangements for their children in parallel to receiving legal advice from their family solicitor.

Family solicitors and mediators regularly collaborate to allow couples to confidently achieve consensus about important legal issues at their pace and without the constraints and costs associated with involving the Court.

For advice about mediation and how we can work with you during family mediation, please contact a member of our family team at either of our Leamington (01926 887700) or Hinckley (01455 610747) offices.
