Family Mediation – the fresh approach to resolving family issues

There is no denying that the breakdown in a relationship is a highly stressful and upsetting time for all involved. Amidst all this turmoil, however, decisions need to be made about children and finances and these can often lead to issues and disagreements that are difficult to resolve. This is where mediation can come in.

Mediation is a process designed to assist families to make decisions about their children and finances with the help of an impartial third party – a mediator. Mediation is voluntary and any discussions taking place when in mediation are strictly confidential, unless there are issues of child protection, domestic violence or money laundering.

What makes mediation different from traditional approach to family law is that a mediator is impartial. Our mediators are experienced family solicitors and can give you information about legal issues but are not on the side of one party or another giving legal advice.
