More than half of all couples think that Court is the only option when separating or divorcing. According to a recent poll published by ComRes, most people would not consider alternatives like family mediation or collaborative family law. This worrying lack of awareness means that separating couples are missing out on services that could help them to resolve the problems associated with family breakdown in an amicable and cost effective way.
When you see one of the family law team at David Gray Solicitors LLP they will talk you through all your options, so that you can make an informed choice. With 7 Resolution Accredited Specialists, 4 Collaborative Family Lawyers and 2 Resolution trained Family Mediators, the team offers the full range of legal services.
For some separating couples, Court is the only appropriate choice, for example, where there has been domestic abuse or there are concerns about children’s welfare, or one partner is being secretive about their financial situation. David Gray Solicitors LLP has Resolution Accredited Specialists in Domestic Abuse, Children and Complex Financial Provision and Pensions.
For couples who can avoid Court, Family Mediation and Collaborative Family Law offer ways of resolving arrangements for children, and financial issues. Both options involve meeting around the table with professional support and guidance so that you can find solutions that work best for your family.
