Pramila will co-ordinate your mediation discussions in an informal atmosphere. This way, both parties can rationally discuss and agree the way forward.

Division of property, savings, contents and personal possessions
Clean break settlements
How the service works

We will arrange an initial interview, during which you can outline your problem. We will assist you in identifying the issues and the options that are available to enable you to reach a mutually acceptable solution. Mediation sessions usually last for one hour. The number of sessions needed will depend on the issues involved.

How much will it cost?
Mediation is generally quicker and cheaper than going to court. We will advise you on costs from the outset. We charge an hourly rate. However, public funding may be available, so please do ask for details.

6. Larken & Co: Newark
The break up of a marriage can be stressful enough without the added worry of the court procedure necessary to bring a legal end to the marriage. Our solicitors are experienced in helping people through the legal process in order to avoid the potential pitfalls and offer sensitive and independent advice.

We will need to take detailed instructions from you to help advise whether you will need the court?s help to settle any financial issues or issues affecting your children. If there is a risk of domestic abuse our solicitors can advise on the best ways of keeping you and your children safe.

In the excitement of a happy relationship, it is understandable that many couples fail to appreciate that there are legal risks once you move in together.

By speaking to our lawyers, you can find out how the law will affect your situation, the rights you might have and what you can do to try and reduce the risks.

For instance, if the house is only in your partner's name then usually you have no right to share in any of the sale proceeds unless you can prove that you have made payments towards the mortgage or deposit or paid for major work to the house. Our lawyers can advise you how best to protect your financial contribution.

There are many other areas that can be a source of problems for people living together such as your children, banking arrangements, pensions, wills and separation.
