We can assist parties to discuss issues in the presence of our trained family mediator, who will help them consider alternative options and possible ways of reaching agreement.
Family Mediation is a process that can be used by couples following the breakdown of their relationship to try and reach an agreement relating to their children or finances. It can also be used by other people, such as grandparents who wish to spend time with their grandchildren.
We have a trained family mediator who can assist you in discussing issues and help you consider alternative options and ways of reaching an agreement.
Mediation is generally much quicker and cheaper than negotiating through solicitors or court proceedings and it can help you and your ex-partner to communicate and co-operate with each other to reach your own agreement. This is particularly important if there are children involved and you wish to maintain an amicable relationship going forward. Mediations is also often less stressful and upsetting than going through Court proceedings and allows you to keep control over sorting out your issues. It is also confidential.
Mediation sessions are currently conducted remotely via Skype but can be in person when the Covid situation permits. We now only offer mediation to private paying clients and no longer undertake Legal Aid cases.
