Family Mediation Service

Family mediators are there to help you to reach decisions about things that are important for you and your family. They can help you to find a way to plan for the future and to agree what will work best for you without having to go to court. That can save you time, money and stress.

Regardless of whether you are a parent or not, mediation can help you deal with your money, the options you may have about where you will live, and planning your future finances.

For cases involving children, usually one or two is sufficient. For cases involving property and finance you can usually expect to attend two or three appointments.

Do I need a Solicitor?

Mediators will provide you with all the tools to resolve disputes and offer you a structured process that helps you plan for the future. They cannot provide you with legal advice, only information.
