Swain & Co. Family Mediation Service helps families reach amicable agreements in divorce and separation, including important issues such as Children and Financial matters.

What is Family Mediation?

Family mediation helps families make arrangements for children, finance, property and pension issues arising from divorce, separation, cohabitation, civil partnerships or prenuptial agreements.

Using family mediation helps you find ways to communicate with one another as a separated couple and/or as separated parents.

Family mediation is more amicable than the traditional legal approach and gives you the opportunity to decide the outcome, rather than a Court deciding for you and your family.

What our clients say about us

“The prioritisation was excellent and once my case was taken on, the commitment was exceptional!! I had reached a stage where I was so close to giving up but having this firm involved was a great transformation to my entire family.

I know there are many firms out there but there is only on Swain & Co and I would never change for any other.”


“I just wanted to write to thank you for all that you have done for me and J and our family. We are both so grateful.”
