Couples Looking to Get Divorced Could Use Family Mediation to Keep the Divorce Amicable

Couples Looking to Get Divorced Could Use Family Mediation

Couples who are equal within a marriage should consider seeking mediation in order to resolve disputes keep their divorce amicable.

That is the view of Brigitte Clark, senior lecturer at the University of East Anglia Law School, who has said that the only situation in which Family Law Mediation may not be suitable is if one party is more dominant than the other in the partnership.

Recently, Roger Jenkins, the man credited with saving Barclays Bank, revealed that his high-profile break-up with wife Diana will be resolved without aggravation as he has said that he is more than willing to share half of his fortune with her.

Ms Clark noted that the help of Divorce Solicitors may be required for divorces that cannot be settled amicably, but this depends "very much on the poeple involved" in each individual case.

She added that Family Mediation is usually only a viable option when there are no major disagreements between the partners.
