Major Family Law - North East's Divorce and Family Law Specialists

Welcome to Newcastle Lawyer Supported Mediation

Separated from your partner/spouse? Live in the Newcastle area and wondering how you go about making sure you settle things fairly?

Perhaps you can’t speak to each other without arguing, but you don’t think you can afford to see a solicitor and you don’t know where you stand. With legal fees in the area likely to amount to between £5,000 and £10,000 for negotiating a settlement for dividing finances and resolving matters relating to child arrangements, it can be a real problem.

Since 2013, Legal Aid has ceased to be available for family law disputes (except for a small number of exceptions) and going to Court can be time consuming, expensive and above all stressful.

Did you know that since April 2014, before anyone can start court proceedings in relation to a children issue or a financial dispute following relationship breakdown, they must attempt to resolve the matter by way of mediation.

Top Newcastle divorce and family law solicitors, Major Family Law, are heading a new national initiative designed to assist separated couples in resolving their issues in a swift and cost-effective manner.

This new service, called Lawyer Supported Mediation, combines the certainty and expertise of using top legal advice with the services of an independent mediator to achieve an outcome you have determined as acceptable to you, which at the same time is fair to all concerned and legally binding.

We begin by offering you a free consultation with one of our senior family lawyers. They will listen to your concerns, answer any questions and explain their role within Lawyer-Supported Mediation. Following your free consultation, we will forward a written estimate detailing your total costs for reaching a satisfactory outcome. Total costs for Lawyer-Supported Mediation begin at £1,500 (incl. Vat)
