Using Alternative Dispute Resolution for family law

Most people would prefer to avoid going to court when dealing with family disputes such as divorce and separation. Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) can be highly effective at handling even the most complex issues, allowing you to get a fair outcome that protects your interests while saving you time, money and stress.

There are two main types of ADR for family that we offer: family mediation (available from our Swansea office) and collaborative law.

Collaborative law

You, your ex-partner and your respective lawyers (who must be trained collaborative lawyers) will have a serious of four-way ‘round the table’ meetings to agree the details of your divorce or separation.

Having your lawyers with you means they are available to give immediate advice and guidance, so this option can be better where there are more complex issues to resolve.

You, your ex-partner and your lawyers will all sign an agreement at the outset committing you to making the process a success. Your lawyers will not be able to represent you in any subsequent court proceedings if the collaborative law process does not result in an agreement, so everyone is incentivised to make the process a success.

Hourly rates for family law services

For more complex issues, we typically work to a pre-agreed hourly rate. This allows us to provide exactly as little or as much help as you need and means you are only paying for the exact amount of time we use to deal with your matter.

This is often the best option where the exact amount of work involved may be harder to accurately estimate at the outset. We will always agree all billable work in advance, so you always stay in control of the costs involved.
