FAMILY MEDIATION: YOUR WAY AHEAD
WHY CHOOSE MEDIATION?
Avoid draining arguments or long legal disputes: mediation is a quicker, cheaper, more constructive way to resolve issues.
This is why courts encourage mediation instead of a court application. Mediators are highly skilled at helping you to reach agreements, which can be formalised by a court order where needed. Decisions made by agreement are more likely to last. There are added benefits for communication if there is a continued relationship with the other person, as parents.
Any conflict can be painful and stressful, particularly when it affect the things that are most important to you, like your family, home or identity. Many people look to solicitors or court, but the legal system is adversarial and your perspective may not be expressed the way you want it to be.
Family mediation helps you to minimise the impact of conflict on the people you most care about. It keeps all that you value at the centre of your discussions. Your voice will be heard and you'll retain control over the decisions that are taken.
