If a family breakdown occurs, there are alternatives to court proceedings which can be less stressful. QualitySolicitors Parkinson Wright provides Mediation and Collaborative Family Law which are processes that offer a conciliatory approach. This can be particularly beneficial where children are involved.
Peter Lewis, Partner, Head of Family Law is a Lawyer Mediator and a member of Resolution, a national organisation of family lawyers committed to non-confrontational divorce, separation and other family problems.
As qualified lawyer mediators with extensive knowledge of Court procedures and experience in family mediation they can deal with issues which can include children and financial matters, enabling couples to reach an agreement that they both consider fair. Peter Lewis conducts Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings (MIAM) which are normally required before court proceedings can be issued if you do decide to divorce.
Peter is also a trained Collaborative Family Lawyer. Collaborative Law is a process similar to Mediation, however, both parties have their own Collaborative lawyer present in the meeting to assist them with discussions regarding legal issues.
Both processes have the advantage of couples meeting each other in a structured setting rather than through the court process which can often be more expensive and stressful.
