Is Mediation right for you?

Some people know they want to manage an amicable separation or divorce, 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. We are skilled at managing mediations even when your relationship and your communication feels very difficult. We can offer a fairly unique therapeutic mediation model where you can have individualised support.

You can work out solutions which suit your situation. Most importantly we listen to your particular interests and priorities and do not steer you towards any standard solution. These can be made legally binding after mediation if required, and where financial matters are in discussion we will always recommend this. We will also recommend you seek independent legal advice to ensure that you make all your decisions fully informed and advised. We can mediate with lawyers in attendance and this is a desirable option in some cases.

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.

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 and the conflict at a time when things are already difficult.


Why choose Albion Resolutions?


How much does it cost?

We favour agreeing fixed fees where 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 and this feels crucial to us if you are making progress. This is why generally we do not quote an hourly rate which might distract your thinking when midst discussion.

On some occasions, where we might charge an hourly rate, this will be £80 per hour.

And if you want a 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."
