Personal Disputes

Personal, Family & Will Disputes

Fortunately, most of us don’t experience the unpleasantness of a family falling out, but they are undoubtedly on the increase. Second families are commonplace and blood is not always thicker than water. Disputes arise because families don’t always manage to plan ahead in a way that is clear-cut and workable; so wills get challenged; arguments arise over succession to property or provision for dependants. Whether it’s over a will, a divorce or just a failure to be able to get on with a family member, the need to resolve personal disputes is paramount, because they can become all-consuming, very expensive and destructive if allowed to fester.

Mediation is not only an effective tool in resolving personal and will disputes after they have begun, but can also be used as a means of preventing personal disputes from escalating in the first place, by getting the family members into constructive negotiation as soon as a potential problem has been identified.

Just a thought …

Good negotiators try to find out what the other side wants.
