Family Mediation Week has highlighted how mediation can enable separating parents avoid court room conflict.
January usually sees a dramatic rise in the number of couples deciding to live apart. Family Mediation is a process that can help ex-partners agree what works for them, whilst avoiding the stress, delay and cost – and conflict of court proceedings.
The benefits of mediation are that it:-
With our help, you will be encouraged to find mutually acceptable solutions with the least amount of conflict.
Mediation allows you to retain control of your destiny and to have your say. You make the arrangements so that they suit your family’s unique circumstances.
No one can be made to attend mediation. You can leave at any time, and cannot be pressured into making arrangements that you do not want.
Mediation is much quicker, less stressful and cheaper than going to court.
The mediator is completely neutral and impartial and will help you have discussions in a constructive way.
Family mediation puts children at the heart of the discussions. It focuses parents on the needs of their children and encourages them to listen to their children’s views and reach joint decisions about their future.
Mediation is completely confidential and the conversations that you have cannot be referred to in any subsequent court proceedings.
