The main advantage of mediation combined with intermittent advice from your solicitor, is that it is considerably cheaper than the court process and allows you to retain control over decisions about your family’s future.
The idea of mediation is to help reduce tension, anger and misunderstandings between parties. This can be especially important where there are children because whatever you may feel about each other, you are going to need to get on as parents for the wellbeing of the children. Mediation is designed to encourage co-operation between parties and to prevent disputes intensifying.
