Family Mediation Solicitors

When relationships break down it can be difficult for couples to communicate and talk to each other. If children are involved, it is particularly important for parents and family members to cooperate with each other. Family mediation can help you through this difficult time and help you work out mutually acceptable arrangements for your children, property and finances. Through the mediation process, we can help you clarify issues and reach a solution which is both fair and workable, and which causes the minimum amount of conflict or stress. Our team of expert and qualified mediation lawyers can also help with financial settlements following a relationship breakdown.

Powers of Attorney

We all have the right to manage our own money and affairs. However, our ability to do this may decrease in later life due to illness, disability, or an accident. By making a Lasting Power of Attorney (also known as LPA) you can help to plan ahead by appointing a member of your family, or a trusted friend, to look after your finances or make welfare decisions on your behalf should you no longer be able to do so. Our team of expert solicitors will be able to advise you on and help prepare your Lasting Powers of Attorney.
