Day 5 of Family Mediation Week’s theme is “A Ray of Sunshine; What a Relief”
Today is the last day of Family Mediation Week.
Once again there is a lot of very helpful information, including videos, blogs and articles available from the Family Mediation Week website (http://www.familymediationweek.org.uk/).
These look towards the end of the process and people being able to move on.
For example, there is a video by Bill Hewlett recording how relieved children feel that they have been listened to, they no longer feel they are caught in the middle and they can go on and enjoy the rest of their childhood.
There are also articles about the importance of everyone looking after themselves, mentally and physically, as they go through the process of separation and moving on.
This is accompanied by another piece focusing on the future and having a clear plan in order to make the best of life.
Mediation is all about helping families to find fair solutions which work for everyone.
Mediation requires commitment and effort by everyone concerned, the couple and the Mediator or Mediators, it is not necessarily an easy process but if it does result in fair, workable solutions the gains are enormous.
Mediation is just one of several ways of resolving issues when families separate. As such, it should always be considered.
Legal advice is vital no matter what process a couple choose to follow.
Legal advice can support and assist the Mediation process so couples can make proper informed decisions.
Family Mediation Week has been an enormous success, the material produced is of first class quality and at Stowe Family Law we are committed to helping our clients identify the process which will work best for them and their families. Stowe Family Law is able to offer mediation services in a number of our offices so if you are interested in hearing more get in touch.
