Mediation|January 21st 2019

Welcome to Family Mediation Week.

Over the next 5 days, we will be publishing information about what family mediation is able to offer based around the theme “The storm before the calm”.

Mediation is a voluntary process, during the course of which a totally impartial and specially trained mediator or mediators, help separating or divorcing couples to resolve issues with regard to their children, their finances and their property.

Research undertaken by the Family Mediation Counsel has shown that where couples do decide to take part in mediation, 70% of those cases result in a whole or partial agreement.

The benefits of mediation

  • It avoids the conflict between parents, which is all to frequent a feature of court proceedings
  • It is quicker
  • It is cheaper
  • It encourages those taking part in mediation to make their own informed decisions as to what is best for them, their children and their families
