Our fully qualified Family Mediators work hard to help both parties to go through the issues in a positive forward thinking way to find a way forward that works for both. An independent, impartial, neutral person to assist parties in a mediation process is the best way to work things out for yourselves, quickly and cheaply.
Family Mediation can help parties deal with:
· Ending relationships
· Building a PARENTING PARTNERSHIP for the kids sake
· Money and property issues
· Emotions and feelings
The principles of Family Mediation:
· Voluntary and flexible to suit you
· Mediators are impartial, neutral and independent
Mediators do not give advice:
We encourage parties to take legal advice at any point in the process and in particular once they have formulated a set of proposals or created a Memorandum of Understanding that may need to become a court order.
i. There is something raised that might mean there is potential harm to an adult or child.
ii. If a party makes us suspicious that they are involved in terrorism, money laundering, drug dealing, benefit fraud, tax evasion or handling the proceeds of crime.
iii. The process of disclosing your financial positions is done on an ‘open’ basis, as it would be in the court process so that this information (once it is finalised and you are happy with it) can be given to you in a written summary and signed in order to be taken outside of the mediation process to your solicitors or court as necessary.
