Child Inclusive Mediation

Child Inclusive Mediation

Research has shown that there is huge benefit for children in making sure they have a voice in the decisions parents have to make about their arrangements following separation and divorce. Child Inclusive Mediation offers a way for their voice to be heard and the meetings ensure that they don’t have the responsibility on their shoulders for making the decisions.

Our mediators are qualified to meet with your children during the mediation process if you both agree and the children are old enough to participate and want to.  This enables us to bring the view of the children into the discussions we have and ensure their voice is heard as part of your decision-making process.  We provide feedback to parents(not to the court or solicitors) but only what the children have agreed for us to share. Even if the children don’t want us to share information they often say it has been good to be able to speak with someone.

Family Mediation for Child Arrangements can improve communication between parents, avoiding expensive and stressful court litigation and help to achieve agreed solutions that work for you and your family.
