Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process during which we will facilitate conversations and help you explore and decide which option works best for you. At the initial individual meetings (called MIAMs) we will take some background information and review the appropriateness of mediation for you. After that, meetings mostly take place together with your former partner.
The benefits of mediation include improving communication between separating couples, avoiding expensive and stressful court litigation and achieving solutions that work for you and your family.
Our mediators have worked as family lawyers for over 20 years and bring this expertise to the mediation process. We will make sure that you have an understanding of the law and all of the options that may work best for you in your particular circumstances. There are many ways a solution can be found and by working with us we will facilitate the so that you are fully informed before reaching a resolution.
We will help you discuss and resolve issues surrounding the financial issues arising out of the breakdown of your relationship. This can include dealing with the divorce or separation process/paperwork, transfer or sale of properties, sharing investments, dealing with a business, pensions, trusts and considering whether child or spousal maintenance may be payable and if so, for how long.
