How can we help you?

I need a family mediator

Family mediation gives separating couples an opportunity to decide for themselves what to do about their children and finances, with help and guidance from trained and impartial mediators. In family mediation, clients are encouraged to cooperate with one another to negotiate and find their own ways to move forward with their lives.

Becoming a mediator

Family mediation is hugely rewarding work. Challenging, yes – but working with separating couples and their children at their most difficult period provides an opportunity to give them the right guidance and help make separation less painful than it might otherwise be. It is a privilege for which mediators must be fully equipped and fit for the demands of the role.

I need a family mediator

Family mediation is a way of helping families to reach agreements about what should happen after separation or divorce. It is an increasingly popular alternative to asking the court to make decisions about family issues.

Every day, family mediation helps couples who are in the process of separating or divorcing to decide what to do about the house, the children, the assets, the debts, and can help everyone in the family to establish new working relationships.

In family mediation, you negotiate face-to-face with your partner about arrangements that need to be made for the future, with the help of one or two neutral third parties – the mediator or mediators.
