Jones Myers specialist family lawyers are at the forefront of non-confrontational routes to divorce such as mediation, child inclusive mediation and collaborative family law. 

Court proceedings

Litigation in family law matters can be a necessary and effective means of resolving disputes, especially when other methods of alternative dispute resolution have been exhausted or are not appropriate for the situation. While methods like mediation and collaborative law can often foster cooperation and agreement between parties, there are instances where court intervention becomes necessary to secure a fair outcome.

One of the key advantages of litigation in family law is the ability of courts to provide urgent relief through injunctions and temporary restraining orders. These legal remedies can be crucial in situations such as domestic abuse or the need to freeze assets to prevent dissipation or unfair distribution.

At Jones Myers Family Law, our experienced solicitors understand the complexities of family court proceedings and are committed to providing tailored and robust representation to ensure positive outcomes for our clients. We recognise that litigation can be a challenging and emotionally taxing process, and our team is dedicated to guiding clients through each step of the litigation process with care and expertise.

Dispute Resolution

Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) refers to methods of resolving legal matters outside of traditional courtroom litigation. ADR methods are often used to promote more efficient, cost-effective, and collaborative resolution processes. Our ADR specialists include Jones Myers Partner, Nicki Mitchell, a champion and expert in non-confrontational alternatives to going to court.


Mediation provides a platform for you and your former spouse to resolve your issues and reach a settlement without the lengthy, stressful, and expensive litigation involved in going to court. It involves a trained and impartial mediator guiding you and your ex-spouse through confidential and voluntary discussions.
