How does Mediation work?
The Process of Mediation involves you as a couple, you negotiate your own decisions face to face, with the help of a Mediator on issues arising from the breakdown of a marriage or relationship such as children, the family home and finance.
What happens at the Preliminary Meeting?
- Whether you chose to come for a joint meeting or not, each of you will be seen separately at the beginning of the meeting. The Mediator can ensure that you would both feel safe to meet together.
- The rest of the meeting will be a discussion about the particular problems that you would like to resolve and whether Mediation would be helpful and suitable for you.
- If both you and the other party attend the initial meeting together and it is decided that Mediation is suitable then we will provide you with any relevant documentation that we need you to complete for the first Mediation session.
- If you attend an assessment meeting alone and you wish to go ahead with Mediation, we will write to the other party to see if they would like to take part in Mediation and attend an assessment meeting.
