Court proceedings can be costly, stressful and unnecessary. Alternatives such as mediation or collaboration can in some cases be more appropriate. These alternative processes can offer a less confrontational, more co-operative alternative to the courts.
The team at Antony Clapp includes a specialist mediator and a collaboratively qualified solicitor, either of whom can advise you on the suitability of these alternative options and, where appropriate, can represent you throughout. Their role will be to engage all parties in making important decisions that will impact their futures and the future of any children (where applicable).
Mediation and collaboration in decision making
Our alternative dispute resolution practitioners will bring all parties to the table to assist in making decisions regarding the welfare needs of children; the future role of parents; making full disclosure of finances; and to discuss the distribution of property. We can assist you to make the best decisions for your future and that of your family.
Status of agreements from mediation and collaboration
Discussion during the mediation/collaboration process, and agreements reached as a result, are not legally binding. This enables the parties to feel able to talk freely. However, agreements reached can be recorded in a consent order which, once approved by the court, is legally binding.
