Mediation is an alternative means to resolving most family related issues that you are unable to resolve with another party. Mediation is a conciliatory means of discussing matters openly and amicably in the presence of an independent third party mediator. This can include arrangements for children, divorce/finances and/or property disputes following the breakdown of a relationship. In limited circumstances, where appropriate and necessary, shuttle mediation can take place. This involves the mediator carrying out the mediation whilst at all times the parties remain in separate rooms.
