Are you and your former partner finding it difficult to discuss issues surrounding your separation? Call us on
Whether you are separated, living together, in a same sex or heterosexual relationship, if you and your former partner struggle to talk to each other but would like to reach an agreement on the practical and legal issues that surround separation, mediation may be the answer for you.
The mediator's job is to be a neutral facilitator of your negotiations. The mediator does not take sides or impose decisions on anyone. Since it can be painful to sit and listen to someone you feel angry or bitter towards, the process is not suited to everyone, especially someone who is afraid of their former partner.
Many people find mediation useful since you will not be handing power over to lawyers and judges who do not know your children to make important decisions that will affect their welfare. Children find their parents quarreling over them distressing, so telling them these decisions have been made in agreement between the two of you, can be one of the most important things you do for them.
If you would like to discuss mediation in further detail or to find
out if mediation may be suitable for you, please contact us.
Mediation is a voluntary process that can help deal with the breakdown of a relationship and resolve practical issues more amicably than settling the matter in court, at the client's pace and cost-effectively.
