Family Law ADR in Northampton

Family law cases are always very stressful on all the parties involved. This is the reason why if you have a family law dispute, it is always a good idea to see a good family law solicitor as soon as possible. There are two main reasons for this. First of all, it sets your mind at ease because you know that a professional will be handling your case from the start. Secondly, it gives your lawyer a head start in handling your case and opens up options for early settlement via family law ADR.

So you might be wondering: what exactly is family law ADR? Basically, ADR stands for alternative dispute resolution. Does the thought of going to court for an actual trial terrify you? Don’t worry, because you’re not the online. Going to trial is always a harrowing experience for someone who is not engaged in the legal practice. This is especially true in family law cases because you have full knowledge that the other party is actually a family member and is someone who is close to you, or may have once been close to you.

In any event, this is why exploring the options for family law ADR is so important. Alternative dispute resolution allows you to settle the legal dispute with the other party without having to enter into actual litigation or court trial. In most family law cases, as long as both parties are mutually satisfied, this is the best option. You do not have to allow your case to reach the actual litigation stage if you can settle it via family law ADR.

With that said, there are different types of alternative dispute resolution:

Family law ADR – Couple Counselling

Instead of going straight for a divorce, couple counselling is one of the most straightforward ways to resolve a conflict in a married relationship with someone. In fact, even if you choose to end your relationship, it does not have to be through actual court process when you can use couple counselling to amicably resolve your differences and then mutually part ways with each other with no hard feelings.

Mediation

If there are financial and property issues after your separation, then mutually agreeing to submit yourselves before a mediator is another form of alternative dispute resolution. The mediator can help the both of you to iron out any disagreements and come to an agreeable conclusion. Keep in mind that a mediator is always and should be impartial.

Arbitration

Just think of arbitration as the same thing as mediation but this time, the decision of the arbitrator will be legal and binding upon both you and your partner/ex-partner. If you want more legitimacy and legality, this is a good option for you.

Collaborative Law

This is almost like a trial for both parties work together with collaborative lawyers to come to a collaborative agreement and there is no presiding judge because the process is not adversarial in nature.

Family law ADR – Round Table

This is very similar to collaborative law, but this time, both parties have their own separate counsel who will work together to come to an agreement and to avoid having the case reach the court.
