Our All Issues Mediation Service
After contacting our service you will be offered a one to one initial assessment meeting. All the issues which need to be looked at are then identified. We will help you both to consider options and reach workable agreements on all issues. This includes full disclosure of your finances.
Mediation sessions are normally conducted with both clients present in the room. Occasionally mediation takes place with clients in separate rooms and this is something we would discuss with you at your assessment meeting. The sessions are structured to allow clients to be able to communicate effectively and negotiate an outcome which is satisfactory to both clients.
Once agreement is reached we will draw up a financial summary and also a mediation agreement, also known as a Memorandum of Understanding. This agreement will reflect financial agreements as well as agreements relating to your children.
