Family Mediation Sessions
Mediation Session Key Points:
Family Mediation sessions are usually joint meetings. Mediation generally takes 1 – 6 meetings that last around 90 minutes, depending on whether the issues are to do with children, finance or both. The decisions made in mediation are made by you. The role of the mediator is to enable you to speak freely and negotiate decisions that you both accept.
Concerning Children and Finance:
Where mediation concerns finance, you are expected to disclose all your financial facts, assets, income and liabilities before arriving at settlement proposals. In the case of mediation about your children, you will, of course, be expected to place their upbringing and every other aspect of their future above all else.
End of Mediation
At the conclusion of mediation documentation is produced by the mediator setting out everything that has been decided, including finances and contact proposals. At any time during the process leading to reaching these decisions, you are free to seek advice from a solicitor or specialist. Mediation proposals are not legally binding until endorsed by a court. Your solicitor can assist you with this.
Child Inclusive Mediation
Child Inclusive Mediation allows children’s views to be heard, and parents to come to more suitable child-focused arrangements as a result of mediation.
