Avoid Court after Separation
When two people decide to separate, there are usually a number of other decisions that have been made about such issues as:
• How to separate
• What to say to the children
• Who will live where
• The distribution of money and property
Mediation provides an opportunity for you to consider these matters together and with the help of a mediator, to decide jointly what you think are the best arrangements for you and your family.
Solicitors and the Courts encourage people to use mediation where possible to negotiate arrangements and reach decisions about their children and financial matters. It is generally quicker, cheaper and often produces more effective agreements when there is a need to sort out the practical aspects of separation.
The mediator will not takes sides, but help you concentrate on what is best for the future. What you say in mediation is confidential. Mediation can be quicker and cheaper than legal proceedings.
