Alternative Dispute Resolution

We will discuss the various options that are available to you including negotiation, Court process and Alternative Dispute Resolution. 

Collaborative law 
The collaborative process is an alternative way for you to resolve matters. 

Our trained Collaborative Lawyers will work with you, offering guidance and advice in a series of open, face to face meetings with you and your partner. The purpose of these meetings is to discuss and try to resolve your issues. They can include the assistance of other professionals such as financial specialists and counsellors who will contribute towards a successful negotiation.

Collaborative law can help to establish communication that will last into the future and inevitably contribute to improved cooperation after divorce and separation. 

Susan Alexander is a Ministry of Justice fully accredited family mediator trained in financial and children disputes and authorised to meet with children, where appropriate, in child inclusive mediation.

Mediation is a cost-effective method of alternative dispute resolution which can avoid the uncertainty of the Court process by allowing a safe space for people to talk through their matrimonial issues. It can help you both make informed decisions that are right for you and your family. 

The Government have recently introduced a Family Mediation Voucher Scheme to support separating or divorcing couples in resolving disputes about childcare arrangements. Only Family Mediation Council (FMC) authorised mediators such as Susan Alexander are able to participate in the scheme which sees the Government contributing up to £500 per matter.

Arbitration deals with specific issues such as finances, property and potentially Child Arrangements. By appointing an arbitrator, you and your partner agree to be bound by their final decision.
