Family Mediation Solicitors

Divorce Mediation Solicitors


Because of changes to Legal Aid for Divorce and family matters under the Legal Aid, Sentencing and Punishment of Offenders Act 2012, the Family Division of the court now requires divorcing couples to consider resolving any disputes over Divorce matters or child care law using Family Mediation.


Duncan Lewis offers lawyers supported Family Mediation in disputes between couples who are divorcing, separating or dissolving a Civil Partnership, including Family Mediation involving:

  • Child Arrangement Orders
  • Child and children custody
  • Child contact and access arrangements
  • Child law and separation
  • Child name change
  • Children court orders
  • Changing a child’s religion
  • Extended family/alternative family
  • Finances and property in Divorce
  • Finances after Divorce
  • Formal separation
  • Informal separation
  • High net worth Divorce
  • International Divorce
  • Judicial separation
  • Leave to Remove application
  • Parental Responsibility
  • Pensions in Divorce and separation
  • Prohibited Steps Order
  • Specific Issue Orders


In some Family Mediation and Child Mediation (involving children care matters), it is possible for children who are old enough to understand what is happening to attend as well as extended family such as grandparents if they have a financial interest in the family home, or are involved in child care, or are in dispute over contact with grandchildren.


There are some instances when Family Mediation may not be suitable. For example, if one party refuses to attend sessions or domestic violence has occurred in a relationship and is under police investigation.


However, in most cases Family Mediation is a highly effective way of resolving disputes in Divorce, separation or dissolution of Civil Partnerships and will also save on costly court hearings and the emotional distress caused by hearings in the family courts.


Both parties can appoint their own Duncan Lewis Divorce lawyer to give independent legal advice at every stage of the mediation process Duncan Lewis’ own Mediators include Resolution qualified Professional Practice Consultants.
