Avoid unnecessary conflict in divorce and family law
We always work to eliminate conflict from cases wherever possible. Resolving issues without recourse to the courts can help couples achieve the best outcome for their children, enabling them to separate their lives and finances without unnecessary animosity.
It will also generally mean that issues can usually be dealt with more quickly and cost-effectively. We promote non-confrontational approaches including constructive negotiation, mediation and collaborative law to reach mutual agreements that avoid the need for litigation.
As well as making the situation less stressful, this also gives you more control over the situation. By way of example, if you enter into mediation then any outcome reached will be agreed upon by you, whereas if you go to court, then you could have a decision imposed upon you that is not the result that you wanted.
