If you are going through a divorce can I commend the approach of our 'boss' Sir Andrew McFarlane, President of the Family Division and a former Midlands barrister. Quite rightly he says too many people end up in court when there are far better ways to resolve their separation arrangements. Be it around the kitchen table or in formal mediation, conversation and compromise is always the best option.

Anthony Collins Solicitors have a mediation team that can help in family law matters. If you would like more information about mediation please call Anthony Collins Solicitors on 0121 200 3242 or email eve.downer@anthonycollins.com
