Family Mediation is a process by which people negotiate face to face about their finances or children with the assistance of a neutral third person, often a mediator solicitor or counsellor. It’s an opportunity to jointly agree what the best interests of your children are as well as your own needs. It is future focussed, helping you to reduce the intensity of conflicts and reach long lasting decisions together.
Where families are on the verge of a break-up or have separated, family mediation eliminates the need for courtroom battles and solicitor costs or delays and our family mediation is confidential except for the sharing of financial information in divorce proceedings or where there is serious risk to children.
Our specialist family law mediators assist people who are having difficulties in their family relationships e.g. between married or unmarried partners, parent & child etc. and is most commonly used for child contact/residence issues; child maintenance, financial settlements or divorce settlements. Family mediation provides that safe environment to work through obstacles. The family mediator is non-judgmental, unprejudiced and you both must be willing to attend the family mediation centre voluntarily.
Our family mediators have legal and counselling backgrounds and will exercise peacekeeping skills during the family mediation process. We would normally use either one or two family mediators during each family mediation session depending on the complexity of the issues e.g. whether there have been recent allegations of domestic violence or there are any mental health problems.
