What is Mediation?

More and more people are considering Mediation as an alternative to Court. Mediation is an opportunity to sit with an impartial Mediator in the hope of resolving matters amicably. We can then assist in drafting any proposals you both reach. Action at Court is a last resort as we believe there is a more achievable way of resolving issues relating to separation, children, financial matters and relatives’ rights.  Mediation is also Voluntary and Confidential. Mediators are independent and decision making rests with you!  You as the experts help shape your future and the futures of your children.

Mediation is not the following:-

  • Reconciliation
  • Counselling / Therapy
  • Legal Advice
  • Legally Binding
