Family Mediation

Mediation is a process for resolving disputes where those in dispute meet with a third party who helps them to negotiate an agreed resolution.

Family mediation is a service which we provide to help separating couples and parents whose relationship has broken down to negotiate their own agreement.  The couple sit down together, facilitated and helped by a trained mediator, and negotiate their own terms of settlement.

With mediation you will be helped to make your own decisions that suit your circumstances. If you decide to go to court it will be a judge who will ultimately make these decisions.

It is a voluntary and non-binding process that only becomes legally binding on the parties if a settlement is reached.
