The Wells Process

When families separate, there are a range of needs to be addressed.  There are legal and financial issues to resolve, there may be a divorce to obtain and, for those with children, there are important adjustments to be made in children’s living arrangements and in the parenting relationship.

The Wells Process – Why?

When families separate, there are a range of needs to be addressed.  There are legal and finance issues to resolve, there may be a divorce to obtain and, for those with children, there are important adjustments to be made in children’s living arrangements and in the parenting relationship.

Our current adversarial legal system can be stressful, lengthy and expensive for the separating family at a vulnerable time in their lives. Mounting costs and escalating conflict can make the challenging process of divorce even more stressful for the family. Many couples have spoken about it being a very chaotic and confusing time for them and their children, and one that can sadly leave lasting damage on family relationships.

We believe there is a better way. That is why we and our partners at The Wells Group have worked together to provide a unique new service.

The Wells Group has been set up by a group of trained lawyers, child consultants and fully accredited mediators, to offer a tailored package of support from a range of experts to guide you smoothly throughout the entire divorce process, without acrimony and rising expense.

All for a fixed fee.

We call it ‘The Wells Process.’

The benefits of The Wells Process are that clients are supported:

  • To resolve finance and children issues by working together rather than against each other
  • With independent legal advice
  • In a child-focussed way
  • For a fixed fee

Rather than being set against each other in an adversarial system with little control over the cost, The Wells Process helps couples to resolve issues together in a child-focussed way, while still getting the independent legal advice they need to make decisions about the family finances.

Our aim is to support families through this difficult and chaotic time in a way that provides certainty over costs, while ensuring legal issues are dealt with fairly, and which promotes a good long-term parenting relationship for the years ahead.

In short, The Wells Process offers child-focussed family solutions for a clear, fixed fee.

I would like to thank you for the time you have spent in achieving in 4 hours, what we never achieved in 4 months. I think it is by far a much better process than solicitors and court.

I honestly feel that we now have a good chance of proceeding in an amicable way that hopefully in time will become a friendship with the children at its core. I do not think we would have achieved this through solicitors, and feel huge gratitude for your patience and gentleness.

It’s so much better to go through this process together in a calm and neutral setting, rather than being defensive at home or seeing a solicitor individually. You’ve been a great adviser on a tricky topic and the meetings were really productive.

Throughout this whole horrible process we have both felt that the system is designed to leave us hating each other and to have had your support in helping us get to this point has meant a great deal, so thank you for your support of us both and for reflecting everything so well.

Thank you for all you have done to make a very sad and painful process somewhat less painful!

Thanks for all your help. We are talking a lot more and generally getting on much better, we even stood next to each other at rugby AND are going to parents’ evening together!

You did more in 4 hours than our lawyers had done in 1 year. For that I am very grateful.
