DIY divorce how mediation can help

The Office for National Statistics’ latest reports showed that there were 118,140 divorces in total in 2012, which is the equivalent to 13 divorces every hour.

The way couples approach divorce is also changing.  DIY divorce is becoming more widely explored because many people are now looking to save money and avoid significant legal fees.  Whilst a DIY divorce may be a suitable alternative to instructing solicitors, a significant number of separating couples are still faced with the more sensitive and complex issue of considering the welfare of their children and dealing with the division of the matrimonial assets and finances.

A relationship breakdown can be very stressful and leave you feeling vulnerable. 
At Gullands, we have a team of specialist family solicitors who will work closely with you to ensure that your needs and the needs of your children are our first priority.  We are also pleased to offer specialist family law mediation services
to reduce the risk of the matter being taken to court which can lead to higher
legal costs.
