Save money – don’t waste money on the wrong advice
Protect the kids – don’t let your divorce or separation become a nightmare for your children
Stay out of court – avoid inconvenient court dates and high legal costs
Family mediation is a form of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) which helps you reach decisions about things that are important for you and your family, without having to go through the court process.
Some mediators offer fixed fee mediation packages – and if they don’t advertise it, there is no reason why you shouldn’t ask if they can make a fixed fee set of meetings available.
The Benefits of Mediation
Mediation gives you the opportunity to take your time and think about the issues that are important to you, whether it be arrangements for your children as they grow up, how to deal with money within the marriage or options of where you will live. The process moves at your pace, which ensures you can carefully consider each issue rather than rushing through it.
Mediators will listen to you to find out what is important to you, and help you make your own choices about how to move forward. Once you and your partner are satisfied with the decisions you have made, you can then instruct a solicitor to complete the legal formalities.
You can also consult your own solicitor during the mediation process, to check that the choices being taken are in your best interests.
