Consent Order - Most people want to achieve a final result as a result of marital breakdown. Once the parties agree a result at mediation, it is best to write that up inot an order by consent. It is eventually sent to the court for a Judge to approve.
It caught my eye in an article on the BBC website that there seems to be a generally accepted idea that the divorce rate is on the increase, without any in depth consideration of what factors might influence the numbers.
Having known Mena Ruparel as a family lawyer advising and representing a considerable number of our mediation clients, I have no hesitation in strongly recommending her. I consider her to be ethical, highly competent and exceptionally focussed on helping clients in separation and divorce reach a dignified and fair conclusion.
I have qualified as a Family Law Arbitrator, this means that I am able to help people to resolve their family related disputes outside court, at times that are convenient to them and wherever they wish to.
