Mediation caters for all personal circumstances
Your circumstances may be very straightforward. There may be no children in the relationship and you may have reached a decision on how you want to share financial assets. In this case mediation can be tailored to a very short series of meetings where you and your former partner, with the mediator, agree upon a succinct mediation agreement. On the other hand, you may have a very complex situation.
There may be children in the relationship and it may be contentious as to how they are to be cared for, or who they should live with. You may also find that your financial circumstances are complex and inter-connected. Assets may be difficult to divide in this case. Here a more extensive mediation procedure may be required, with a series of meetings.
Whatever your requirements, we have the flexibility to offer different levels of service.
With a court battle involving your divorce you will often find that solicitors are in control of the process. They will determine when they can see you and it is often the case that appointments are only available during their business hours. This means that you will have to disrupt your own work, or family, schedule, in order to make these meetings. There is also a linear progression to the legal process. There are certain steps to follow and, once you have made a decision, it is very hard to turn back.
With mediation the process is much more flexible.
You can make an appointment at times that suit you. It is even possible to make evening and weekend appointments. The type of mediation meeting can also be varied to meet your circumstances. It might be that you initially prefer the mediator to be a go between for you and your partner if you can not, in the first instance, stand to be together.
However, eventually you will be expected to attend joint meetings in the same room. With mediation you arrive at a mutually agreed, flexible, solution to finances and childcare issues.
