Have you considered Mediation?

Mediation is quicker and cheaper than going to court.
Find out more by meeting us for free before you take your first step.

Mediation helps you to reach agreed solutions for you and your family, rather than imposed Court decisions. Instead of negotiating with your partner at arm’s length through your own separate solicitors, or battling it out through the courts, you and your partner work together with the help of a trained family mediator to resolve the issues yourselves.

Your first meeting with us is free

We will explain the process, understand your situation and assess whether the mediation process can help you.

Our offices in Chelmsford have separate
waiting rooms and mediation suites.

Your partner will be asked to attend at the same time as you; however we acknowledge that in some situations it is just not desirable for you to meet in the same room.  Leonard Gray offers a service called ‘shuttle mediation’ where no face to face communication takes place. Instead your mediator acts as a go-between and you will remain in separate rooms throughout the session. Full details of our location can be found here.
