Resolving Disputes

You are not always going to agree with your co-parent about all aspects. What happens when you can’t agree?

We take a look here at some of the most common methods for resolving disputes between co-parents.

  • Using a Solicitor for Advice – Whether you are considering going it alone “in person” or looking for someone to give you guidance, how will having a solicitor help? What do they do and why might it be an idea to take some advice?
  • Mediation and Resolving Disputes – If it’s not all plain sailing, how will you resolve any disputes that arise? Mediation is one of the main routes to reaching an agreement with the other parent.
  • Negotiation – If you can’t mediate, negotiate! But how does this work in practice and what do you need to know about it to succeed?
  • “Private” Court Processes – These are some of the more modern ways of resolving a dispute without setting foot in the court room. What do they involve?
  • Court Process – Court should be a last resort, but sometimes it is necessary. We explore what you might expect if you end up there.
