With our team on your side, going to court is not your only option. We offer a wide range of non-court family law options and have excellent links with recognised family arbitrators and relationship counsellors.
Mediation is an increasingly popular and cost-effective alternative to the adversarial court process, helping you resolve family disputes outside the more traditional court system. During face-to-face meetings with your spouse, you will be supported by a trained and accredited mediator who, as an experienced family lawyer, also brings to the discussion the benefit of their legal knowledge and expertise.
We fully embrace Child Inclusive Mediation and our Mediator is trained to meet with children, usually aged 10 and above, to make sure their voice is heard in the arrangements you are making for them.
We work closely with our mediation clients to help find out-of-court solutions that are tailor-made to work for you and your family. Our family department can also provide advice in support of the Family Law Arbitration Scheme.George Ide LLP. We're on your side
Alice was amazing from start to finish, gave me accurate and sound advice. She always kept my expectations to a realistic level, and I would recommend her to anyone in a similar position to me, a credit to George Ide solicitors. I always felt I was dealing with a friend not just a solicitor.Garry Sherrington

I can enthusiastically recommend Alice Leadbeatter/George Ide. I was extremely grateful for the clarity of her communications and for demystifying many of the processes. Alice was prompt in her replies and very professional – both of which were appreciated in navigating a difficult time.Jennifer Hudson
