Mediation provides couples with a safe environment to meet together in mediation sessions, with a neutral professional to resolve issues arising from their separation. Our mediators are also family lawyers, so they have specialist knowledge of family law. Mediation is not an opportunity to try and fix the problems in your marriage, nor does it provide you with a forum to determine the reasons for your relationship breakdown.
Mediators do not take sides, they are neutral. They are not advisors so will not give advice, which is the role of your mediation lawyer. They will usually recommend that you obtain legal advice alongside the mediation process. Mediators will provide couples with broadly based legal information.
