What is family mediation

Divorce and separation are hard.  It is generally better if you can sort out arrangements between you.  The aim of mediation is to help you find a solution that meets as many of your needs and those of your children as possible and that you both think is fair.  You can also make sure that the arrangements are tailor-made to suit your family.  Mediation can reduce tension and help improve communication between you. 

Meetings would take place with both of you and the mediator to help you find this solution. The mediator does not take sides or just act for one of you. 

The video below provides an introduction to help understand the benefits of family mediation instead of going to court.
