What is family mediation?
Working Towards a Better Tomorrow
Mediation is a process
Mediation is a process through which the mediator helps you to make choices together.
During that process practical arrangements are made by you for your family.
Mediation is empowering because you take control of the decision making, rather than leave the decisions to a judge.
What does the mediator do?
Our mediators will guide you through the process, empowering you to make choices about your family or finances. We’ll help you get there and make sure your voice is heard.
The Mediator is an impartial third party who keeps the conversation focused and the process running smoothly.
Conversations can often get heated and move off topic when discussing divorce, separation or the care and arrangements for children.
The mediator guides the process and keeps everyone focused on what matters.
Important things to note:
Mediation is voluntary.
Mediators are impartial.
Mediators do not give legal advice; they provide helpful information to enable better solutions to be found.
Mediation puts any children at the centre of the conversation.
Mediation is not suitable for everyone. This will be explored during your assessment meeting.
Mediation is not counselling or relationship therapy.
