Family Mediation is a process that helps couples who are going through a separation or divorce to resolve issues between them. It is a way for both parties to come to an agreement without having to go to court. Family law mediation is often seen as a more affordable and less stressful option than going to court.
If you're considering family mediation, then you should get in touch with Family Law Mediation today. We offer a free initial consultation so you can find out more about the process and how we can help you.
What issues can family mediation help resolve?
The aim of family mediation is to help you and your ex-partner resolve any issues between you so that you can move on with your lives. Family mediation can help resolve a wide range of issues, such as child support, child custody, property division, and spousal support.
How does family mediation work?
During family mediation, both parties will meet with a mediator to discuss the issues that need to be resolved. The mediator is neutral and will not take sides. Instead, they will help both parties to communicate with each other and try to reach an agreement on the issues. If an agreement is reached, the mediator will draw up a legally binding document called a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU). This document will outline the terms of the agreement and can be used by either party if they need to go to court.
The first step in the family mediation process is to book a free initial consultation with us. This is an opportunity for you to find out more about the process and how we can help you. We will then arrange for you and your ex-partner to meet with one of our experienced mediators. The mediator's role is to facilitate discussion between you and help you to reach an agreement. They will not take sides or give you legal advice.
What are the benefits of family mediation?
Some of the benefits of family mediation are that it is less expensive than going to court, it is less stressful than going to court, and it allows you to have more control over the outcome. Family mediation is also confidential, which means that anything said during mediation cannot be used in court.
In addition, family mediation can be a faster process than going to court. And, it can help to improve communication between you and your ex-partner, which can be beneficial if you have children together.
