What is Mediation?

Mediation is a forward thinking and cost effective method of resolving family legal disputes and an alternative to stressful Court proceedings, saving you time and money.
Rather than parties going to Court and a decision being imposed upon them, a mutually agreed third party, known as a Mediator, creates an environment in which parties who have different interests can jointly decide their own outcome. The Mediator listens to both sides and helps the parties set their own agenda and find their own solution.

Why Mediation?

There are many advantages of mediation:
• Resolving a dispute through mediation will reduce you legal costs, compared to going through Court proceedings which are often 5x higher than mediation costs.
• Mediation will save time and help you reach a resolution quicker. For example, a family mediation might take 3-5 sessions (spaced maybe four weeks apart) whereas a Court dispute over children or money might take 18 months
• The average civil mediation lasts for one day contrasted with contested Court proceedings of several months or even years
• Mediation provides the opportunity to reach an agreed solution which is acceptable to you
• The process is completely confidential
• Mediation helps to protect working or family relationships, by encouraging good communication and avoiding confrontation.
When can mediation be used?
• Divorce and separation of married couples
• Separation of unmarried couples
• Financial disputes 
• Property disputes 
• Child custody and maintenance payment disputes
