What is Alternative Dispute Resolution?

Following the decision to divorce, you and your partner will have to make some important decisions regarding the future of your family. Children, property and finances will usually be at the top of your list, and reaching agreements about these matters isn’t always straightforward. When you instruct one of our family solicitors, we will encourage you to resolve these disputes through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR). ADR is an umbrella term which refers to various methods of resolving conflicts peacefully and constructively, outside of court.

This could be in the form of Mediation; a structured negotiation session involving you, your partner and a trained mediator whose role it is to referee the discussion. Collaborative Law could also be beneficial depending on your circumstances; and involves both you and your partner along with each of your solicitors coming together to work towards resolution.

Alternative Dispute Resolution is only effective when both parties are willing to cooperate. However, if this is successful, you will save yourself a great deal of time, money and stress involved with court proceedings. We recognise that ADR is not always a possibility, so if your dispute has already escalated beyond negotiation, rest assured that our family solicitors are equipped with the experience and expertise necessary to protect your interests, no matter how complex matters become.
