Don’t let the ‘No Fault Divorce’ delay halt your divorce. Family Mediation can help.
21st June 2021 by Gemma Burden
It has recently been announced that there will be a delay to the much anticipated no-fault divorce, which will now come into effect on 6 April 2022, instead of this autumn.
This landmark legislation means that from next April, ‘no fault divorce’ divorcing couples will no longer have to allege adultery or dredge up allegations of unreasonable behaviour in order to obtain a divorce.
However, if waiting until April 2022 to start divorce proceedings is too long to wait, Laceys can provide a sympathetic, collaborative option for divorce proceedings in Family Mediation where you work together to find the best solution for you and your family.
Instead of making threats or getting one over on each other, which creates a cycle of unease and conflict preventing you both from moving forward, family mediation encourages co-operation, open-mindedness and problem solving within confidential discussions to achieve a positive outcome for everyone involved.
Family Mediation is a process which enables you both the opportunity to work together and explore your options regarding the children and/or finances in a neutral and controlled setting with one of our experienced lawyer mediators.
Mediation also allows you to take control and make the decisions, rather than taking the risk of lengthy and expensive court proceedings where the outcome is largely unknown.
Laceys Mediation are currently taking part in the The Ministry of Justice Family Mediation Voucher Scheme which provides a contribution of up to £500 to families towards the mediation costs of a child arrangements case, in the aim to support people resolve their family law disputes outside of court, where possible. You can find out more here.
Laceys Mediation have offices based in Bournemouth Poole and Southampton. If you would like any further advice on mediation please contact our Mediation department on 01202 377993 or email@example.com who will be happy to help.
