Family Mediation

The fresh approach to resolving family issues

Family Mediation Fixed Fee – the fresh approach to resolving family issues

Mediation provides a cost effective alternative to resolving the issues surrounding children and finances that can be a result in the break-up of a relationship. The process is designed to use an impartial third party (the Mediator) in joint session with both parties to help resolve any issues and agree common ground.

The sessions are confidential.  The mediators can explain the legal issues but rather than representing either party they work with you to reach agreement. It is less confrontational, and therefore less stressful, than pursuing decisions through solicitors and the Courts. It is often far quicker and because agreement is made, it can often improve the communication in the family and result in a better longer-term outcome.

Mediation can be used for couples whether married, cohabiting, civil partnership, separated, divorced, heterosexual or same sex. It can also be used by other family members such as grandparents to help resolve an issue surrounding children or finances.

Initial appointment £120 (inc VAT), mediation sessions £222 per session (inc VAT), FREE if you qualify for legal aid.

The number of sessions will depend on the issue to be resolved. At the initial session we will assess whether you are eligible for legal aid. If you are eligible and have supplied us with all the relevant documents to confirm this, mediation will be provided free of charge.
