Family law solicitors in Boston
Family law can be complex and emotive, with issues such as divorce and separation often being particularly difficult to navigate due to the practical issues involved and the tendency towards conflict between the parties involved.

Family dispute resolution in Boston
If you are getting divorced or separating, or disagree with a former partner over arrangements for your children, we can help you find a solution without the need for court action wherever possible. This alternative dispute resolution approach is usually faster, less expensive and less stressful as well as allowing you to maintain a more positive relationship with your ex-partner where this is desirable.
A number of our family law team are Resolution-trained mediators and collaborative lawyers, meaning we can offer a highly effective non-confrontational approach to family dispute resolution.
Mediation – This involves both you and your partner (or former partner) sitting down with one of our trained neutral mediators to talk through the points of disagreement and agree a mutually acceptable solution. Most divorcing couples will be required to consider mediation before being allowed to take their case through court with a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM).
Collaborative law – This involves both you and your partner (or former partner) meeting, each supported by your own lawyer trained in collaborative law. The aim is to negotiate a positive solution that protects both parties’ interests, while giving you the expert support of a trained lawyer throughout. This can be suitable where there are more complex issues to resolve, such as joint ownership of a business.
