Understanding Mediation

With Mediation, disputes can be resolved quickly and can be long lasting.

During Mediation, parties have the opportunity to meet with a trained independent third party, otherwise known as a mediator, in order to talk through issues with the aim to resolve them. Such issues can include children arrangements, how your money, assets, home etc. are divided and so on.

A mediator will ensure that each party has the chance to voice their position and concerns and will then look at the options available. In order for both parties to be happy, the mediator will urge you to think through the different options, so that an acceptable agreement is reached.

There is no fixed length or number of sessions as this will depend on the situation. During sessions, the mediator will help you to reach an agreement, which is then written down in a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’. The agreements reached in Mediation can be made legally binding in court as long as both parties are happy.
