Family mediation gives you the opportunity to resolve any of your disputes in a civilised manner. You can discuss matters with a qualified mediator, and reach an agreement that benefits everyone, without needing to go to court.
When family mediation can be useful
Generally speaking, mediation can be used for all non-criminal disputes. This includes workplace conflict and disagreements between neighbours. Mediation can help with:
- Divorce and separation issues
- Child custody and parenting battles
- Disagreements over the rights of grandparents
- Family business disputes
- Inheritance battles
- Extended family conflict
- Disputes over elder care
How does mediation work?
When you attend your first mediation session, a specialist mediator will sit down with you and the other parties to fully understand the facts of your situation.
Once they have established what you want to get out of the sessions, they will put forward a range of proposals, questions, offers and counter-offers. They will never make decisions or suggest solutions on your behalf.
The benefits of family mediation
The main benefit of family mediation is that it keeps your case out of court, which saves you time, money, and inconvenience.
Mediation also offers more control over personal decisions rather than a judge getting the final decision. If you reach an agreement together during mediation, then a solicitor will draw up a contract that both parties will sign to confirm that they understand and agree to the terms.
If any of the terms are broken, the offending party can be taken to court for a breach of contract.
We can help you to find the right mediator for your specific situation, and work towards the best solution for you.
