Ways to resolve your dispute

The end of any relationship is stressful, unsettling and puts an emotional and financial strain on all of you involved. Our specialist team of family lawyers have extensive experience in supporting people throughout this difficult time and managing disputes to make sure you get the best possible outcome.

There are a number of ways to resolve matters effectively:

  • Agreement between yourselves – it is generally quicker and cheaper if an agreement is made between both of you without the need for court involvement. In most cases, your solicitor will liaise with your former partner (or their solicitor) to manage this
  • Collaborative approach – it may be more appropriate for you and your former partner to agree on a collaborative approach
  • Mediation or arbitration – sometimes it is helpful for a neutral third party to help mediate or arbitrate to avoid court proceedings and to enable discussion within a less formal environment

If none of the above options are suitable, or if it is not possible to reach an agreement with your former partner, it may be necessary to take issue court proceedings. We can guide and support you throughout this process, which will result in a binding decision.

Whichever route you take, we are here to help you choose the method most appropriate for your needs. Our expertise comes from years of helping people to find the best way to move forward from a relationship breakdown and as such we are well equipped to handle your case, no matter what direction it takes.
