Many separating or divorcing couples would like to reach an agreement concerning their children and financial issues, but find it hard to speak to each other about these issues constructively without help. Mediation can help you by providing a structured framework for your discussions to move forward to a conclusion.
Mediators are neutral and cannot give advice to either side within the mediation process. They will encourage each of you to check with an independent solicitor about issues which arise during the process and to help you draft a legally effective agreement at the end of it. Successful mediation can avoid bitterness, legal expense and delay. It is usually completed within 3-5 sessions. If mediation is not working for you it can be stopped at any time as the process is entirely voluntary. The aim is to provide a flexible and informal environment to allow you to achieve a tailored solution.
If you feel that mediation may be appropriate for you or would like to know more about mediation then please feel free to contact us.
