Lawyer Supported Mediation is a new approach for resolving issues arising from divorce or separation. In our opinion, it's the ideal choice for separating partners who, although in disagreement, want to avoid the strain and expense of more costly Divorce Court proceedings.
With Lawyer Supported Mediation we can offer residents of England & Wales a fixed fee for all the legal advice and support needed to reach an agreement. When setting your fixed fee we will take into account your specific requirements and financial circumstances. We will confirm your fixed fee before you have to pay a penny.
You retain us as your Lawyers and this approach can be used to resolve financial issues and/or arrangements for the children. We will prepare all necessary documentation for you.
We believe Lawyer Supported Mediation combines the best of both worlds; one of our expert Family Lawyers for the advice you need PLUS a fully trained family Mediator to help you reach an agreement that we, as Lawyers, consider fair in accordance with what you are entitled to by Law.
Statistics tell us that of all the people who attempt Family Mediation, over two-thirds go on to reach agreement.
What About My Separating / Former Partner?
Lawyer Supported Mediation requires both parties to participate. That is why our partner and founder of Lawyer Supported Mediation, Advantage Resolution Ltd, will act as your professional go-between. If called upon, it is their role to establish the willingness of your separating/former partner to participate. There is no charge to you for this service.
Advantage Resolution will liaise directly with your separating/former partner. By way of example, they will be offered a free legal consultation with a second Official Provider of Lawyer Supported Mediation offering the same range of fixed legal fees as Slater and Gordon.
