Our practice specializes in family law and family mediation.
A divorce is a drastic event for everyone in the family in which each lives through it in their own way.
During this period, you will be making important decisions that you do not always know are right and possible. Concerns about finances, housing and your children can cause tensions to rise. Perhaps you have noticed that this puts a lot of pressure on the communication between you as parents.
We guide you through your divorce in which both your emotions and practical issues receive the attention they deserve.
During this process we inform you about the legal aspects and everything that matters. In our working method, the best interests of the children and your interests as parents always come first.
What we do
Mediation offers you the opportunity to speak out and to talk things through. You remain in control; together you reach agreements that work. On average, mediation is completed within 3 half-days in our practice and the divorce can be finalized within 2 months.
Within our practice, your children are the focus and the children's best interests always come first.
Children often feel responsible and may think they are to blame for the divorce. When needed, our child coach stands beside the children during the divorce and, as a professional, speaks the language of both you, as parents, and the children..
Days until official divorce
We chose Child Friendly divorce because we have young children. Meike and Sabien have assisted us well during a difficult period. It felt familiar from the first time we spoke. They took their time and explained well, as often as needed. in connection with urgency, Sabien acted very smoothly in the legal process towards the end. It's nice that they think along in possibilities, even if we didn't see it ourselves.
My ex-partner wanted a divorce, I had doubts. It was only during the first mediation meeting that we really started talking to each other again. The divorce was finalized within 5 weeks of the first mediation. There was always a lot of attention for our child and also which arrangement would be best for her. There was also a lot of attention for how we as parents talk to and interact with each other. And how we were. In a time with a lot of emotions, this has helped me a lot and I still think about it regularly.
We zijn gescheiden met mediation bij een andere praktijk en na een jaar hebben we Sabien en Meike gevraagd om ons te helpen omdat we iets wilden veranderen in het co-ouderschap. We konden niet goed met elkaar praten, wat ons erg stoorde en de kinderen ook.
Meike en Sabien hebben ons de begeleiding gegeven die we nodig hadden. Ze hebben ons geholpen om beter te luisteren en te praten, ook met onze jongens.
Toen we bij Sabien en Meike kwamen, hadden we bij een andere praktijk al een mediationtraject doorlopen dat door de mediator vroegtijdig is beëindigd. We hadden daar begrepen dat het heel moeilijk was om ons te begeleiden. We wilden samen proberen tot een oplossing te komen maar begonnen met twijfels over de mediation. We hebben elkaar ontmoet tijdens het proces en zijn er met een lach en een traan doorheen gegaan. Sabien, Meike, bedankt om ons door dit pijnlijke proces te loodsen. Je hebt met ons samengewerkt om de basis te leggen voor de toekomst van ons vijf.
