Mediation is a form of dispute resolution which involves an independent mediator meeting with both people, either together or separately, to try and resolve an issue which has been unable to be resolved by the people themselves.
The process is intended to provide a forum for discussions to take place in a neutral environment with a view to those issues being aired and hopefully overcome. Clients will have the opportunity to talk about their views and feelings and what they would wish to achieve. The process will involve negotiation taking place between the clients to try and reach an agreed resolution.
The ethos of mediation is to empower families to make their own decisions, rather than being told what to do by somebody else, or by entering into court proceedings. Mediation can break through communication difficulties and can help people to resolve issues more easily in the future.
“Absolutely fantastic service throughout. Friendly and efficient staff and would recommend over and over again for all Law requirements.”
