Absolute Mediation : Family Law & Divorce Solicitors in Cardiff


As specialist divorce and family law solicitors in Cardiff, we are able to   provide formal, experienced, legal advice and practical support. We can also allow you to choose, between the cost effective and contemporary “Mediation” Services now available in Family Law or, for the majority of our clients, provide established “Traditional” family law solicitor representation.


We can always promise you a realistic and cost effective evaluation of your family law problems if you contact us at an early stage.

We also believe we are straight-talking and direct, focusing on providing clarity at what is always a very stressful time. We will aim to be creative and strategic in finding an early solution to your problems, whilst dealing with matters with both discretion and sensitivity.

There have been many significant changes in Family Law in the last couple of months, with the new unified Family Court and the radical dismantling of availability of legal aid in private family law cases. It is therefore more important than ever, to secure appropriate information and formal legal advice at an early stage.

Mediation, like making peace, can only be progressed where both parties are willing to participate in the process. It is an option highly promoted by the Family courts, although will
only be effective in a very small overall proportion of cases where matters are not vigorously in dispute.


We concentrate on all areas of Family and Divorce law, Children’s Services,Financial and Property Disputes and can also assist in many other Civil Litigation claims where you seek expert resolution of legal problems.

We act for those in the process of divorce, cohabitants in property disputes,grandparents seeking legal rights to their grandchildren, those in dispute with the local authority seeking return of their chidren, for victims of domestic abuse seeking protection, for those seeking a prenuptual or cohabitation agreement.

We can arrange a confidential consultation on any of the above matters without financial obligation.

LEGAL AID  can still be available for those who are the victims domestic violence, or where a child is potentially at risk.

We also aim to provide you with a versatile, friendly, cost effective and sympathetic legal service.

We provide a full range of fixed fees in respect of all legal matters we undertake and/or provide detailed costs information in advance of you formally instructing us.


We often provide a second opinion  for those clients who are unhappy with their current solicitors, sometimes due to a personality clash or perhaps a feeling they have been passed on to a more junior member of staff without justification. Most of us like to retain the solicitor who best understands our case and/or, not pay for duplicated work.

We are able to provide a second opinion without your current solicitor being notified if you so require and arrange to handle your case if you so wish.


We understand how distressing relationship problems or breakdown of relationships, often are. We cannot promise you easy or instant legal or practical solutions. We can though unravel problems and provide you with the specialist support you need, to help reach an action plan for the most favourable, albeit realistic, outcome you can achieve.

After experiencing major problems or setbacks in our closest relationships, it can sometimes feel difficult to keep going or to lose focus on the achievable goal.

After multiple attempts at trying to invent something from synthetic rubber to the light bulb, Thomas Edison famously commented “ I have not failed, I have just found 10000 ways that won’t work”

We believe it is usually easier to see the light than to invent it, with the right professional support.
