What is Family Mediation?
Family mediation is a neutral way of resolving disputes which can arise before, during or after separation or divorce. The aim is to avoid lengthy and costly court proceedings.
The family mediation process helps divorcing and separating couples come to an agreement for the arrangements of their children and finances in a constructive and structured way. Our qualified family mediators will guide you through the process, ensuring that you are fully informed throughout. Our accredited Mediators cannot offer legal advice or counselling, but they are all fully qualified family law Solicitors and registered with the Family Mediation Council, so they will make sure that any agreement or decisions that you make are legally acceptable.
The Mediator will help you to explore your options and guide you in checking how practical your proposals are, assisting you to reach workable solutions. However, the outcome you reach is entirely under your control. The family mediation process involves the clients working together with the Mediator. It is hoped that you will reach an agreement or compromise in a way which best suits your family.
Family Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process which gives each person a chance to explain their issues, plans and concerns to each other in the presence of a qualified family Mediator.
