We will be offering free mediation information sessions to people considering divorce.
The sessions with the firm’s Family Law and Mediation Team are being held as part of Family Mediation Week, which runs from 21 to 25 January.
Family Mediation Week is organised by the Family Mediators Association, which seeks to help separating couples to take control of their situation and make decisions together, as well as ensuring that the views of children are heard.
Caroline Fell, head of Stone King’s Family and Mediation Team, says: “It is important for separating couples to know that it is possible to resolve things constructively with your partner, avoiding conflict and so finding the best way forward for you and the family as a whole. “Our specialist team of mediators can help you deal with this process, enabling clients to co-operate with each other to negotiate and find ways forward that are right for the whole family, therefore lessening any conflict at an emotionally draining time.
“We hope these free information sessions will provide some clarity to aid people’s decision making at what can be a very difficult time.” Caroline is acting Chair of the Bath Resolution group. She is an accredited mediator and collaborative lawyer.
The work of the Family & Mediation Team has again been recognised by the latest edition of respected legal rankings Chambers which says: “Highly respected for its representation of clients in alternative dispute resolution proceedings, such as arbitration, mediation and collaborative law. Regularly acts on private finance and children matters, and also has strength acting for clients on public children law cases. Clients benefit from its additional expertise in complex matters such as tracing hidden assets in foreign jurisdictions.”
All free divorce appointments must be pre-booked in advance with Stone King and will take place at 13 Queen Square in Bath.
