A Collaborative Divorce means you have more control over the process. Collaborative law/practice is usually less costly and more effective. You and your ex work together with me and your ex's lawyer to create a safe, professional environment for a resolution to be achieved.

Mediation is a process to help resolve disputes. I meet with you and your partner in an impartial role. Together we identify those issues you can't agree on and I help you to try and reach agreement. As a family solicitor I can greatly assist you in reaching legally enforceable agreements.
