According to National Family Mediation, more couples are taking time to calculate and consider their options before starting court proceedings.
They have seen a huge surge in calls to their dispute resolution specialist helpline.
If you are thinking of separating from your partner and need advice on your options, please get in touch. Court is a last resort and there are many ways of reaching an agreement without having to start those types of proceedings.
Instead of heading off to court to settle their divorce, separating couples now ‘cogitate, calculate and consider’ their options, according to dispute resolution specialists at National Family Mediation. Staff at National Family Mediation have seen the number of calls to their telephone helpline more than double in the past year, as figures from children’s court advisory service Cafcass show big falls in numbers of people beginning private law cases in court during a similar period.
