Jo Edwards discusses the growth in "private divorce" on BBC Radio 4's Money Box

Jo Edwards was interviewed by Paul Lewis on BBC Radio 4's Money Box and discussed the use of a two relatively new and innovative processes to resolve divorce cases: private Financial Dispute Resolution appointments (FDRs) and arbitration.  Couples using private FDRs or arbitration for divorce cases can elect to have their case heard by a solicitor, barrister or a retired judge and each side usually has a solicitor to represent them. Divorcing couples can choose where and when their case will be heard.  One advantage of private divorce is that couples will have their divorce resolved sooner than in the courts, with tailor-made justice and their privacy assured.

Forsters' family team is experienced in taking cases to private FDRs and arbitration and will be happy to explore these options with you when considering your case.
