As a Family Consultant I am able to help you to prepare for mediation by thinking through with you some of the issues that you may want to explore with your partner.
Mediation is impartial, cost- effective and avoids the stress of lengthy and expensive court disputes. Your mediator will hear from both of you and support you in reaching an agreed settlement. You may want to talk about
- the needs of the children
- parenting plans
- living arrangements
- financial and property matters
Your mediator will also be able to meet with your children to find out what they think and to involve them in the process. It is important that your children feel that they have been consulted.
