Family Dispute Resolution (or FDR) is mediation specifically designed to assist parents to reach agreement regarding the arrangements for their children following separation. Mediation is the out-of-Court option, and we work with a wide range of experienced mediators. We can become involved at any time throughout the process; even at the end when you need your agreement formalised. 


Although t is a more expensive and challenging avenue, sometimes Court is necessary. We always work hard to explore all other options for settlement prior to heading to Court, but if it is the best option available, we will advocate for you to the best of our ability. We work collaboratively with other parties to generate real solutions and put your best case forward; all whilst being fixed fee.



Mediation is a confidential process. The Mediator assists and guides the parties to reach a tailor-made solution in relation to their financial and child-related issues. It tends to be the quickest and most cost-effective way of dealing with disputes arising from the breakdown of a family relationship.

Pre- and post-nuptial agreements

Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements are a prudent way of setting out what will happen should a relationship come to an end. We regularly help clients negotiate, draft and review agreements, providing clarity about how matters will be dealt with should the relationship breakdown and ensuring the rights and interests of the parties are protected.
