What is the mediation process?
Family mediation typically involves the couple attending a series of face to face meetings. And the discussions are facilitated by a professional, trained mediator.

Our family mediators know communicating after a separation is tough. So they are skilled at helping people work through issues they have to consider. These include emotional, practical, legal, financial and technical things.

And our mediators are skilled at helping when feelings are running high, at a time when co-operation is the last thing somebody expects from their ex.

Who can use family mediation?

Family mediation is open to anybody affected by family breakdown including separation, divorce and dissolution of civil partnership. 

Mediation is also available to other family members. Grandparents may be having difficulties over contact arrangements, for example. And step-parents can use the process if they would like to support their new partner.
