I am Mijke Baeten, an attorney and mediator specialised in family law. When faced with divorce or the end of a relationship, there are many challenges to navigate. Additionally, other family law matters may arise, leading to various questions. You may be concerned about your assets, income, business, home, or the well-being of your children. In such situations, you need an experienced family law specialist who can assist you effectively while considering your personal interests. Someone who collaborates with you to find the best approach for optimal results.

You can turn to me for assistance. I graduated in Notarial Law and Dutch Law, with a focus on family law. I have gained extensive experience as an attorney and divorce mediator, handling complex divorces at reputable firms for many years. I subsequently founded Baeten Advocatuur. My practice specialises in all aspects of family law and, due to its small scale, offers a personalised approach.

I can represent you as an attorney or serve as a divorce mediator, assisting clients in the context of their divorces, including international cases. I have expertise in dealing with prenuptial agreements or cohabitation contracts, property divisions, the establishment or modification of child and spousal support, matters related to custody, visitation, and parenting plans. I can also help with enquiries regarding pension equalisation, guardianship, lineage, or name changes.

My clients are often entrepreneurs (including those in agriculture), professionals, self-employed individuals, expatriates, affluent individuals, and/or their partners.

What sets me apart? The combination of expertise in my field and a strong ability to empathise. Together with my clients, I work towards sustainable solutions. If necessary, I involve other experts. Once a resolution is reached, I ensure careful documentation of agreements to prevent future disputes. Customization is essential.

What drives me? Guiding clients through a significant phase of their lives with my legal expertise. I find fulfillment in resolving problems sustainably, with consideration for personal interests, clearing the path for the future.

If you have questions or if I can be of assistance to you, please feel free to contact me. I am a member of the Dutch Bar Association (Nederlandse Orde van Advocaten) and the specialisation association for Family Law Attorneys and Divorce Mediators (Vereniging voor Familierecht Advocaten en Scheidingsbemiddelaars, de vFAS).”
