Helping You

If you are currently in dispute with your ex-partner any of the following:

  • Being stopped from seeing your children
  • Contact is being restricted or agreements being broken
  • Disagreement over properties, pensions and debts
  • Disputes over financial support for children

Our qualified team of mediators can help you to find a solution and reach agreements to avoid expensive and time-consuming court action.

If you are wanting to obtain a court order, mediation has to be considered and attempted before the court will accept an application for any child or financial matters.
