Family, Divorce & Separation
Mediation prior to embarking on one of the most stressful legal processes can be highly effective in navigating a divorce or legal separation, especially when children are added into the mix. Agreeing on a clear set of rules regarding dividing up of assets and childcare in a non-adversarial confidential setting (whether in person or online) can make a huge difference to the whole experience of the legal process and help to improve ongoing relationships.
Mediation is not an alternative to couples or family therapy and specialist family lawyers should be instructed by the parties to advise on and oversee the legal process.
I just wanted to thank you for helping us deal with our break up in a way that allowed us to have some agency and to retain dignity. Mediation helped us to understand how to treat one another with respect and keep things in proportion. We are now able to proceed with our divorce without histrionics and our children have benefitted from not being dragged onto an emotIonal rollercoaster. I can't thank you enough.

Although our separation was painful, by attending mediation beforehand and agreeing between us how we wanted to divide up the home we had shared for over 9 years made the legal process much easier as we didn't feel antagonistic towards one another. We have been able to remain friends which was extremely important to us.
