Why Choose Mediation?
Family mediation can provide you with:
The opportunity to assess whether there is a possibility of a co-operative outcome to your dispute.
A process that tends to be less costly, less confrontational and less antagonistic than the alternatives such as via solicitors, barristers and / or court proceedings and improves the chances of long-term co-operation within your family.
The opportunity to help you control the pace and content of mediation rather than your futures being decided by lawyers, legislation or the court.
A process that reduces hostility and improves the chances of long-term co-operation within your family by resolving shared problems and sorting them out.
A process that is less stressful for you and therefore, indirectly, for your children.
A process that focuses on the interests of your child(ren) – helping you to work together as parents, recognising and meeting the needs of each child together
The opportunity to look to the future, not focussing on the past as a family.
A process that usually takes place face to face, so you can hear and consider each other’s words and are able to speak directly, rather than through text messages, emails and solicitors’ letters that can be easily misinterpreted.
A process that tends to be quicker, more cost-effective and less stressful than dealing with disputes through legal representatives and the court process.
A process that allows your family to create a flexible and bespoke set of proposals, tailored to fit your family’s situation and needs.
