Cambridge Family Dispute Resolution Group

Welcome to the Cambridge Family Dispute Resolution Group. Our aim is to provide a comprehensive range of interdisciplinary solutions tailored to each of our client’s specific needs, helping them to make key decisions about their future in an environment of support, protection and guidance.


Mediators are trained to help resolve disputes over all issues faced by separating couples, or specific issues such as arrangements for children. A mediator will meet with you and your partner together and will identify those issues you can’t agree on and help you to reach an informed agreement.

Collaborative Law

In a collaborative process, the family lawyers and their clients agree, in writing, to reach settlement without court involvement. They agree to work together to resolve any family and financial issues arising out of the separation.


Family arbitration is a form of private dispute resolution in which the clients enter into an agreement under which they appoint a suitably qualified person (an “arbitrator”) to make a decision in a dispute and make an award. It can be used to resolve financial disputes and disputes concerning children.
