Meditation is Much More Cost-Effective
It’s no secret that keeping civil disputes out of court can save you money. You don’t just have to pay the court fees, but you’ll also need to pay for your solicitor’s time. Paying for mediation, therefore, decreases these expenses; leaving you with less financial stress. Also, if you lose your case; you won’t have to worry about paying court fees on top of paying the winning party’s legal costs.
Cases such as contentious probate claims can be lengthy and emotionally draining. By taking the possibility of court out of the mix, you can decrease the amount of stress felt by both parties. Our probate solicitors in London can help you gather the relevant evidence for your case; as well as guide you through the probate process to help you achieve the desired result.
It’s a Less Stressful Alternative
As previously mentioned, opting for mediation or an alternative form of dispute resolution can decrease the stress surrounding the case significantly. Cases are usually resolved much quicker than if they went to court, which could take months or even years to be settled. Sometimes, court cases require a few different court hearings before they can be resolved and can take months to be listed.
Mediation can be organised between your solicitor and the opposing parties. This can be set up in the form of round table sessions or even just through letters and emails. From contentious probate disputes to issues concerning construction law in London, we’re here to assist, referring to legislation such as the Defective Premises Act 1972 and the Inheritance (Provision for Families and Dependants) Act 1975.
It’s More Confidential
If you’re going through a divorce or an inheritance dispute, you might not want to make your affairs public. Unlike court appearances, mediation is completely confidential and is dealt with between you, your solicitor, the opposing party, and their own legal representation.
