WHAT ARE MY OPTIONS?



Generally, the further it gets from you sorting things out to the court deciding:


  • It gets increasingly more expensive

  • The longer it can take

  • The less in control you are of decisions

  • It becomes more adversarial, which can have a negative effect on your relationship as separated parents

BEFORE MAKING A DECISION THERE ARE FOUR MAIN VENUES TO CONSIDER

Between ourselves

Have a conversation around a neutral table; Identify and prioritise areas of discussion; Work through them item by item; Try to compromise to reach mutually acceptable decisions.

Going to mediation

Locate a quality mediation service and use accredited mediators who are registered with the Family Mediation Council and have the letters FMCA after their name

Between solicitors

Lawyers on each side, trained in the collaborative model, meet together to work things out face to face and giving you advice and support throughout the process.


Going to court

A judge decides what is going to happen and takes control of the financial decisions and any decisions about the future of children. It can be destructive, take a long time and be expensive but parties can represent themselves.
