Mediation is a process in which disputes and issues arise on separation can be resolved in an amicable and constructive manner, avoiding the need for court for costly and prolonged court proceedings.
Mediation is often the most cost effective and time efficient means of resolving disputes and reaching agreement on divorce or separation. The process is designed to help manage conflict and provide you with the tools to help avoid it in the future. Your mediator’s job is to provide you both with unbiased legal information facilitate the communication between and help you both to explore possible answers. The goal of your mediator, is to help you to make mutually acceptable decisions.
