Non-confrontational divorce in Kingston upon Thames
A key concern many people have about getting divorced or separating is that the process will take a long time, cost a lot of money and involve a lot of conflict. Non-confrontational dispute resolution exists to help prevent this, by allowing divorcing or separating couples to sort out their affairs without the need for court action.
Non-confrontational dispute resolution generally revolves around two key techniques – mediation and collaborative law. Each has its advantages and can make the process of ending a relationship much easier, allowing you to resolve issues such as financial settlements and arrangements for children.
Mediation involves both parties meeting with a trained neutral mediator who will guide you in discussing the issues that need to be resolved and help you agree mutually acceptable solutions. Couples seeking divorce will normally be referred to a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) to see if mediation is appropriate for them before being allowed to have their case heard in court.
Collaborative law involves four-way negotiation between the separating couple and their respective lawyers. The aim is to discuss the various issues and agree solutions without the need for contact. This has the advantage that both parties have a trained lawyer on hand to ensure their interests are protected throughout.
