we help newly separated couples avoid unnecessary conflict at a difficult time.
Are you recently separated and need help setting ground rules for how children and finances will be managed? Mediation is suitable at any stage of separation.
At Donaldson Law, we recommend that even when a couple are not in a position to reach final agreement, that ground rules are established as to how children and financial matters are going to be managed, whilst a final agreement is being reached.
We offer a fixed fee meeting designed for couples who have just recently separated, to set ground rules early after separation and avoid any unnecessary conflict and escalating issues at such a difficult and emotional time.
This process is not designed to reach a final agreement, it is for the couple to reach an interim agreement so that they each have the time and space to consider what they need on a final basis. This way no one is rushed into decisions at a time of great upheaval and change, but at the same time immediate issues are discussed and mediated to avoid growing conflict.
The simplest and most cost-effective way for us to help you plan the best way forward for your family is for you to meet with one of our solicitors. Only by meeting with you and discussing this in detail, can we recommend the right plan for you and your family.
