Remember...

The participants always remain in control of the settlement and have the ultimate decision on what terms they agree to.

When should you use a family mediator?

Commonly, family mediators help to settle disputes within marriages, civil partnerships or cohabiting couples. They can help to resolve a range of disputes, including:

  • Who gains ownership over properties? (e.g. the family home)
  • How are financial assets distributed? (e.g. money in bank accounts)
  • Who will the children live with and how will they be paid for?
  • How will the separation pan out overall?

The family mediation process does not prohibit the involvement of solicitors. However, it is sometimes more helpful if the parties attend mediation without their solicitors present and take separate independent legal advice outside of the process.
