Mediation is a way in which separating or divorcing couples can meet in a neutral and safe setting to identify, discuss and resolve issues between them. These issues can include:
- Making arrangements for children
- Decisions relating to the family home
- Financial arrangements and contributions
- Pensions and pension sharing
Mediation is not counselling and will not try to keep you together. Instead, it helps you to take control over important decisions relating to your family and to move forward. The aim is avoid the need for expensive and lengthy court proceedings.
