Family Mediation is an alternative way of resolving issues surrounding divorce or separation. Our Family Mediators aim to assist by working with separating couples in an impartial way, facilitating them in finding their own positive solutions to their issues and separating with dignity. In Family Mediation we work with couples to help them consider different options and to explore each one in detail. Family Mediation can be particularly helpful to couples who wish to minimise potential conflict and for many can offer a quicker and more cost effective alternative to Court proceedings.
Our mediators can help couples going through separation or divorce find their own bespoke solution without going to Court. In mediation, the mediator cannot give any legal advice but can help a couple find their own solution, and one that is best for the family as a whole and, in particular, any children involved.
