Bath law firm signs up to scheme saving £500 off legal fees
Bath law firm Stone King is supporting a Government scheme which will see separating parents able to claim up to £500 off the cost of mediation.
Under the scheme, the Ministry of Justice will provide contributions of up to £500 per family to resolve issues relating to children following parental separation.
Family mediation is a process by which an independent, professionally trained mediator helps parents work out arrangements for children and finances following separation.
Local family mediator, Caroline Fell from Stone King, welcomed the introduction of the scheme.
“This investment in mediation will help separated families agree solutions that are best for their children, ensuring that mediation is accessible to all and therefore helping families to resolve issues for themselves, without having to go to court,” she said.
Mediation can also be helpful when previous child arrangements need to change, particularly as children grow up.
