How Can We Help?
Mediation, as used in family law, is a form of alternative dispute resolution, is a way of resolving disputes between a couple or parents. A third party, the mediator, assists the couple negotiate their own settlement. In some cases, mediators may express a view on what might be a fair or reasonable settlement, generally where all the parties agree that the mediator may do so (evaluative mediation).
The process is private and confidential. Different from “negotiations” mediation has a structure, timetable and dynamics that negotiation lacks. The presence of a mediator is the key distinguishing feature of the process. There may be no obligation to go to mediation, but in most cases, any agreement by the parties will be binding on them.
Mediators use various techniques to facilitate and open dialogue between a couple, aiming to help them reach an agreement on the matters related to obtaining a divorce.
