My ex is harassing me on social media. What can I do to make them stop?


11/12/2018   By: James Edmonds

Social media now means that harassment can take many forms and your online safety is paramount.

Do lawyers and mediation mix? How you can use a lawyer during your mediation


12/10/2018   By: Andrew Moore
There is a misconception that you need to choose between mediation or instructing a solicitor. In reality, mediators and solicitors are not in competition. In fact, you are likely to get the best result for you and your family if you use both together as each has their own specific skills they will be able to use to help you reach an agreement with your ex.

What about my child’s views – are they taken into account in mediation?


10/10/2018   By: Hannah Wilson
One of the many advantages of mediation is that it gives you the flexibility, time and space to discuss your child, future arrangements for them, and any difficulties they might be experiencing. This could range from where they go to school, to how they share their time between their parents, to whether they attend their classmates birthday parties, and who buys the birthday presents. You can set your own agenda in mediation, and discuss anything that is relevant to your child and your role as parents.

08/10/2018   By: Andrew Moore
Following almost a decade practicing as a family solicitor, I chose to train as a mediator. Why? At the time it seemed to be a sensible next step in my career; on a superficial level it would be another service, along with collaborative law, I could offer my clients in a bid to avoid a broken court system. There was however much more to the decision.

22/05/2018   By: Alison Bull
Let’s be honest, it doesn’t sound like the most joyous of places to take a relaxing holiday, does it? “What are you doing this weekend?” “Oh, I’m just taking a short break at the DivorceHotel.” You can imagine the response.

What is a forum race? And why does my ex want to win it?


22/03/2018   By: Eleanor Lowes
As the world becomes ever smaller, it is far from uncommon for a separating couple to realise that more than one country may be able to deal with their divorce. However, different countries approach the financial arrangements on divorce in very different ways. Procedures also vary from country to country, particularly in relation to the disclosure of financial information. This means that a couple with the same financial resources could end up with very different financial arrangements if their divorce is dealt with in England than if it were dealt with, for example, in France or one of the US states. London is often described as the “divorce capital of the world” because the English courts tend to be more generous than other countries towards the financially weak.
