About family mediation
Family mediation is a process that enables separating couples to negotiate face-to-face about the arrangements for their future with the help of a qualified, skilled and experienced third party.
Family mediation is confidential, voluntary and impartial. All of the decisions made during family mediation are made by the couple themselves.
It provides families with a structured and safe way of resolving their differences at their own pace, with guidance from a trained professional and encourages them to focus on the needs of children and to take into account everything that individual family members believe to be important.
Family mediation can be used effectively by separating couples and families of all types, including cohabiting or same-sex couples.
