Separation Agreements

Going through separation and the transition that this requires can be very emotional and challenging

Mediation can be used to resolve the financial and practical issues following separation so that this can be put into a legal document that you will both be able to rely upon.

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.

As accredited mediators we can help you to discuss and resolve issues surrounding the financial issues arising out of the breakdown of your relationship. This can include dealing with the separation process/paperwork, transfer or sale of properties, sharing investments, dealing with a business, pensions, trusts and considering whether maintenance may be payable and if so.  We can also help you agree the arrangements for children.

When dealing with financial issues there is an obligation to give full financial disclosure, ensuring that any agreements reached are based on facts so that everyone is fully informed.

During the mediation process it is sensible to seek legal advice on the options we discuss, as mediators we are not able to give legal advice, we must remain impartial throughout the process.

Mediation offers a place for you to talk calmly and confidentially about the issues, helping you work together to achieve practical solutions for you and your family.
