Family Mediation

Family Mediators understand that when relationships break down, talking face to face can seem the hardest thing to do. Skilled mediators can help the process by keeping communications channels open and working with couples together to reach the right decisions about their futures.

Our Mediators are particularly aware of how stressful and emotional any issue arising out of the breakdown of a marriage or relationship can be and strive to assist both parties in minimising conflict where possible.

How does Family Mediation work?

Our Family Mediators may have a number of sessions with you and your partner in an attempt to assist you reaching agreement – typically this can be between 3 and 5 sessions each lasting up to a couple of hours.

Our family mediators provide impartial guidance in helping you both reach a fair and practical solution.

You can seek advice from your own independent solicitor at any stage as to whether the settlement you are discussing is fair and is likely to be approved by the court.

When you have both reached a settlement you are content with, your own solicitor finalises legal formalities.

Resolution-trained family mediators routinely conduct mediation alone. However they can, if you wish, work alongside a second mediator. This is called co-mediation.
