It is important for clients to consider all of their options when it comes to resolving disputes. It is not always appropriate, and sometimes disproportionate, for a case to go to court. Therefore, where suitable, we encourage clients to consider alternative dispute resolution methods.

Alan Kaufman, a consultant in our team, is a trained mediator with experience in both children and financial matters.  In certain situations, where couples wish to reach an agreement, they need assistance from a neutral third party in a neutral environment. Alan works with couples in a constructive manner to help them find a solution to their dispute. 

Since April 2011, it has been a requirement to consider mediation at a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) before issuing any financial or children application to the court. Alan is MIAM accredited, and is able to conduct MIAMs on behalf of clients.
