Choosing the right process for you

As Resolution members we believe in resolving disputes in a constructive non-confrontational way, but this does not mean we shy away from court proceedings and in fact we conduct much of our own advocacy where many solicitors will rely on barristers even for preliminary hearings.

We understand that acrimony and disputes impact on the children of the family as well as the adults and there is also impact on the wider family such as grandparents.

We will tell you about different ways to resolve your dispute such as:

  • Directly with your ex partner
  • Mediation
  • Collaborative law
  • Roundtable meetings
  • Arbitration 
  • Via solicitors
  • Court proceedings

We will help you decide on the right process for you.
