Family Law and Mediation
The law of persons and family law concern, among other things, divorce, children, pensions, taxation, and inheritance law.
The position of children in a divorce is of the utmost importance. For children need not suffer additionally as a result of the divorce on top of their parents’ separation.
The consequences of a divorce involve, for instance, the division of property, such as the community of property or a prenuptial agreement, the consequences of the divorce for taxation and company, a self-administered pension, and child and matrimonial maintenance.
On the basis of our principle “pain should not be prolonged”, we offer the opportunity with divorce mediation to arrange a divorce in mutual consultation.
Mediation is a modern form of dispute settlement without the intervention of a court of law.
The parties involved, possibly assisted by their own counsel, will make arrangements in negotiations led by the lawyer-mediator about the consequences of their divorce and any disputes in that respect.
When the parties involved do not opt for mediation, a meeting of the parties with their lawyers can produce a result.
Proceedings can sometimes take years, whereas a dispute is often solved quickly with mediation or a meeting of the parties.
Furthermore it is apparent that this manner of consultation leads to a win-win situation for both parties more often than drawn-out proceedings with winners and losers.
In addition the mutual relationship is less damaged than when a hard, legal battle is fought.
Thus in particular the interests of any children are guaranteed.
Briefly put: Opting for mediation in a divorce is showing courage!
