As day one of Family Mediation Week commences we feel it is the perfect opportunity to explain more about the Mediation process available to separating families.

Family mediation is a process in which an independent, professional mediator helps you work out arrangements for children and/or division of finances following separation. Family mediation can also be helpful when arrangements you have made before need to change, particularly as your children grow up.

Family mediation helps you keep more control of your family’s future. The mediator will help you find solutions which work for you both and will explain what needs to happen to make an agreement between you legally binding.

Family mediation…

  • helps you reach and make your own arrangements about parenting, property and money
  • should be less stressful than going to court and it is on your own terms
  • is more cost effective than being represented throughout a court process
  • helps you put your child’s interests and wellbeing first
  • helps you move on quickly to the next stage of your life.
