The mediation process is an efficient and cost-effective alternative to settling a wide range of family disputes, without the need for the costly and time-consuming process of litigation and court hearings.
It also plays a very valuable role in a family context, helping couples who are separating sort out a whole range of issues: at a time when anger, hurt and mistrust can be common, that may be easier said than done. Happily, there is a solution. Mediation is suitable for discussing children issues and financial issues, no matter how complex.
LD Family Mediation isn’t about marriage guidance or counselling. It certainly isn’t about lawyers fighting over the children, house, car and money.
What LD Family Mediation does is to give you the expert, impartial help of someone who’s trained to listen, understand and help you reach your own decisions. Someone who will focus your attention on what’s important. Someone who will help guide you through the practical concerns you’ll have to face. And give you down-to-earth, understandable support on reaching an agreement that you both can live with.
Both of you have to be ready and willing to take part in mediation. Both of you have to be open and honest. Both of you have to want it to work. Then, it most certainly will. The alternative, after much time and argument, could be a solution imposed on you by a judge, together with potentially large legal costs.
Our Family Mediators can provide everything you need to get through your separation with the minimum of stress. We have proven expertise in family law, real experience of the problems and pitfalls that can occur, and a genuine commitment to making the solution as simple and straightforward as possible.
