Resolving family issues through mediation rather than the courts
Here at Sampson Coward we have two family solicitors who are qualified mediators which means we can also offer co-mediation if appropriate. Mediation provides a safe environment for you to resolve such issues as arrangements for children and financial matters following separation/divorce. It gives you control over the decisions made and the time frame.
Since April 2014 you cannot issue a Court application in family matters regarding children or finances (save in very restricted circumstances) unless you have attended at least one session to find out about mediation and what it could offer you.
