Is Your New Year’s Resolution To Separate?

The New Year traditionally brings resolutions about health, how we spend our time and relationships. With help, it is possible to be aware, kind to ourselves and others.

If you have come to the conclusion that separation or divorce is the kindest thing you can do for your family then it is essential to seek the best possible advice at this emotional time.

In our experience there can be such a thing as ‘a good divorce’, and with the right support, information and advice, the whole network of family relationships can be maintained and managed, benefitting the couple, their children, family, friends and community whom are all affected.

One way to talk through the situation, find fair solutions for the future, in a confidential, less stressful and more cost effective way, than going to Court is Family Mediation.

Mediation works by helping people find practical solutions that feel fair, focusing on any children, the couple and their needs.

Lisa Broddle, Family and Collaborative Lawyer, Mediator and Partner at Stone Rowe Brewer LLP, and her team, are able to advise you and find the best process for you and your family, whether this is personal negotiation with legal advice, mediation, the collaborative process, or traditional negotiations, which can assist you in building and maintaining communication to achieve a fair, clear and workable agreement at a time of family change.

If the topics mentioned here affect you and your family, or you would like to speak about any of these issues, please contact Lisa Broddle or Mikayla Lettin at Stone Rowe Brewer, who will be able to answer any questions you may have. Please call 020 8891 6141 or e-mail or
