Providing Mediation and Dispute Resolution Services


Mediation is becoming an increasingly positive choice for many individuals who are going through a challenging time with their family situation. At what is already an emotional and sometimes distressing time, mediation can help keep control of the decisions you need to make in order to reach the required outcome in a structured, productive and cost effective way.

Mediation has been proven to work especially well in situations where:

Our expertise helps clients sort out:


Is Mediation right for you?

Some people know they want to manage an amicable separation, and this process is a perfect fit for that. Some others may not feel amicable but they still want to manage things in a pragmatic and affordable way.

Whatever your personal circumstances, mediation is an effective way to help you arrive at the decisions that need to be made. These can be made legally binding after mediation if required, and where financial matters are in discussion we will always recommend this.

It’s a very different option from using the court process or the traditional solicitor route. Both these processes can be time consuming and very expensive and this can add to your distress at a time when things are already difficult.

You can work out solutions which suit your situation. It is a very structured process which helps you make crucial decisions at a time when it might be too difficult to do this by yourselves.

We do not give you legal advice but we give you lots of legal information. Most importantly we listen to your particular interests and priorities and do not steer you towards any standard solution. We’ll recommend you seek some independent legal advice at some stage to ensure that you make all your decisions fully informed and advised. We can also mediate with lawyers in attendance and this is a desirable option in some cases.


Why choose Albion Resolutions?

You will get a dedicated and experienced family mediator, and we also bring skills and insights from the other areas in which we mediate.

We are flexible in how we deliver mediation and we will discuss the structure with each of you.

We are generous with the time we allocate to your meetings. You are not rushed to fit in with a busy diary. We offer very competitive fees and are committed to the most professional service with outstanding customer service.


How much does it cost?

Our fees are straightforward. They are fixed fees and there are no hidden extras - for paperwork, for VAT or for Shuttle mediations. The time estimates are approximate - we do not watch the clock precisely. If you are eligible for legal aid it will be free.

And if you want low cost divorce management service - we can offer that too - see below examples of your options to achieve a legally binding settlement.

Testimonials

"I thought it would be so difficult to sit together and sort things out. But you managed the meetings so well and gave us really helpful information. I’ve been to court before and I wish I’d known then that I could have used mediation."

"You helped me think things through clearly before the meeting so I felt prepared and I feel satisfied with the outcome. We could not have achieved that on our own. It’s really good value for money."
