Mediation is a flexible process that is used in a number of different situations. By giving everyone the opportunity to explain their side of the story, and to talk without being interrupted, mediation can be very helpful when a situation is stuck. Mediation can work because:
it allows people to be heard
it is an empowering process that encourages people to put forward their own suggestions and ideas.
it is less intimidating than legal procedures
it provides solutions that the parties themselves have decided on, giving them all a sense of ownership of any agreement. As a result, agreements reached in this way last much better than solutions handed down by courts or an arbitrator.
it can be organised quickly.
It is usually affordable by all.
Please also note that anyone now wishing to issue financial or children proceeding needs to have undertaken a MIAM ( a Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting) to establish whether mediation may be a useful tool in resolving their matter, before court proceedings are instigated.
Family Legal can help refer your case to a local mediator. We work alongside mediation and can be there to advise you along the way and can also take steps to incorporate any agreements reached into a legally binding format.
