What is family mediation?

Family mediation is an alternative way for separating couples and families to resolve disputes and difficult issues in an amicable way. Mediation works by helping people who have decided to separate or divorce or who are trying to deal with changes in family relationships to talk things through. A trained, independent third party mediator is instructed to meet with you both to help reach a resolution without conflict. All sorts of things can be discussed at mediation, such as arrangements for the children, financial and money matters or arrangements about living in the home. Mediation helps you make informed decisions, and provides somewhere safe and neutral to talk calmly and privately. Mediation is voluntary and confidential, and can often be more cost effective and quicker than court processes.
