Separation and divorce
Whether your separation is amicable or difficult, there may be some tough discussions and decisions involved. Mediation helps you talk matters though in a calm and practical manner. Mediators are highly skilled and experienced at helping people get past arguments and impasse and to focus on finding a way forward that will be in the best interests of everyone involved, including children and other loved ones.
All our family mediators are trained to Family Mediation Standards Board and College of Mediators standards and are listed with the Family Mediation Council. We were also amongst the first independent mediation providers to be awarded the governments Help and Support for Separated Families mark both for our mediation services to the public and our training of professional mediators.
We can help you with:-
- Sorting out arrangements for your children to avoid any undue distress or damage due to your separation.
- Discussing your plans for your home and to separate your finances in a clear and structured way to ensure all decisions are fully informed and understood by both of you.
- Discussing how you can resolve any other matter which may arise from your separation and divorce.
- We also have highly experienced and fully trained mediators who can meet with your children to discuss what their needs are, to inform your decisions as parents about the best way forward for them.
Because mediators have to remain impartial, we are not able to give individual legal or other advice. We can however help you identify what legal or other help you might need at the right time for you, ensuring you are making best use of advice when you need – keeping individual advice costs to a minimum.
Anything you discuss in mediation is protected by confidentiality and is without prejudice. We can however, document your joint decisions in a without prejudice outcome statement which you can use as your jointly agreed blueprint for any legally binding agreement if you both agree to this; again saving time and money in lengthy legal arguments.
