Family Mediation Service Banbury – experts in Divorce and Separation
If you have children you will want to show them that you can put their needs first when you are undertaking a separation, or divorce. Even if you do not have children it makes sense to approach divorce or separation in a mature and sensible fashion. Whatever damage has been done before, or during, the divorce or separation it makes sense to move ahead in a constructive way. Legal proceedings can often be destructive in terms of destroying any possibility of future negotiation and in terms of costs. However, the legal route is not the only one to consider and you should think about mediation.
Our Mediators in Banbury have received extensive training in how to reach an agreement following a divorce or separation. They are used to dealing with any situation that might arise and can adapt their mediation accordingly. Whatever your issues, whether they involve children, property or finance, our mediators are able to help you to reach a mutually beneficial agreement. There is no compulsion to undertake mediation (although courts may expect you to have attended MIAMS, Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings or to have completed an FM1 form) and it can be a healing process for both parties. The first step in mediation is to attend (separately) meetings to consider whether mediation is a suitable solution to address the issues concerned. Following this, a series of mediation meetings are proposed. These meetings can be arranged in a variety of ways. The advantage of these meetings is their flexibility. They can be arranged around your schedule, and will enable you to take control of the situation. At the meetings you can discuss a variety of issues including (but not limited to) children, property and finances. At the end of the series of meetings you are expected to make an agreement which will help you to move forward with your separation and divorce.
