Mediation is a process enabling you and your spouse or former partner to reach agreement with the assistance of an independent third party mediator. The mediator helps you to reach your own solution. Mediation can be used in conjunction with other traditional negotiations.
Mediation is well suited to family situations and child contact disputes. Our solicitors can provide you with advice in relation to the mediation process and whether or not it is suitable for your dispute. They can refer you to a suitable mediator. They will assist you to deal with any agreement which might be required to give effect to any settlement which you might agree at mediation.
In this process both parties would use the same mediator, but would require separate lawyers to finalise any agreement reached.
