Mediation – Family
Family mediation is a process of resolving disputes whereby parties attend mediation meetings with a Mediator who is completely impartial.
Many issues can be discussed in mediation including issues arising out of parties separating, arrangements for the children and financial matters. Parties will explore the various issues with the assistance of the Mediator with a view to the parties reaching joint decisions about the future arrangements.
Mediation is a voluntary process and it is important to remember that the Mediator will remain impartial and will therefore not take sides. Neither will the Mediator advise or make decisions for the parties – the decisions are made by the parties.
It is often beneficial for parties to seek legal advice during the mediation process although this is not a requirement.
Mediation is not always appropriate and there may be reasons why mediation should not happen in a particular case.
