Divorce or living apart and apart? Always look into the possibility of mediating first!

It never ceases to amaze me how few people are aware that there are alternate solution ways to resolve a family law dispute, despite the fact that I have watched the behemoth that is the family law system struggle to keep up with the demands of the modern world, with latest funding cuts having left it severely underfunded and far too reliant on adversarial approaches. Having watched this, it never fail to astound me how few people are fully aware of this.

The use of collaborative law (with solicitors who are suitably qualified), early neutral evaluation (to seek a legal opinion from an experienced lawyer or judge), arbitration (to seek an out-of-court ruling on a case), and the use of direct access barristers are just some of the alternatives to traditional courtroom litigation that are available.
