How to achieve an amicable divorce

Head of Family Law Grainne Fahy has spoken to The Independent today following news that Bill and Melinda Gates have filed for divorce.

Grainne believes “a common misconception when it comes to divorce is that litigation through the courts is the only option. In fact, divorce can be settled through many different paths, including negotiation, mediation, arbitration or collaborative divorce.”

Grainne adds that “family arbitration is another option whereby the resolution process happens privately, rather than in court, where an ‘arbitrator’ is appointed to decide the case… ‘Out of court’ options are often quicker, cheaper, more flexible and amicable than going through the rigmarole of court litigation, with both partners having their voice heard in a way that is more conducive to a fair settlement.”
