Regardless of the circumstances for the divorce or separation it is always a stressful time. That stress can be compounded by lengthy and expensive Court hearings. Sometimes the parties would benefit from face to face meetings from a trained mediator rather than attending a formal Court hearing before a Judge.
The mediator has to be impartial and unbiased. They will work through the issues with both sides, they will try and understand both parties position and help address points of conflict.
The sessions can take a few hours, or a few days, but the aim is to reach a settlement that both parties are happy with without the cost and stress of a Court hearing.
If both parties can reach an agreement, it will be legally binding.
The mediator is highly trained on mediation and family law. You may find the pricing structure and the process of mediation is the best way forward for you.
