Nigel Shepherd, chairman of the family lawyers association Resolution, of which Reshma is a member, says that family arbitrations handled by them have doubled in a year.
Arbitration can be binding or non-binding but either way can be quicker and more flexible than the court system.
Using a Resolution member solicitor will give you more flexibility and control of both your time, and has the potential to reduce your costs.
Reshma offers a free family law surgery on Tuesday mornings. If you would like to discuss potential options for any “family” difficulties you may be experiencing.
