What is Mediation?

  • Mediation is a process used for the resolution of family disputes.
  • An independent third party assists the parties to discuss matters through a structured process.
  • Mediation is a facilitative process. The Mediator has no advisory role  and the Mediator does not provide the parties with legal advice but can provide information to the parties about the legal process.

Benefits of Mediation:

  • The process encourages the parties to make their own, mutually acceptable decisions regarding children, property and their finances.
  • The parties may also have their solicitors attend the mediation.
  • The parties can discuss all issues in order to reach an agreement.
  • Agreements reached in the course of Mediation can be formalized by the Courts.

The Mediation Process.

  • Gather your information. Try and make a list of your assets and other resources together with approximate valuations as well as a list of liabilities.
  • The Mediator will conduct an intake interview with each party to gather information and then set a date for the mediation at a neutral location.
  • The parties attend the Mediation (sometimes with their lawyers). An Agenda is set by the Mediator in consultation with the parties and the parties discuss options with a view to reaching an agreement.
  • Most importantly keep an open mind, remain positive and be ready to negotiate and compromise.
