Mediation: How does it work?

Mediation provides an effective way to reduce the conflict when a relationship breaks down.

Mediation can help you deal with your money, the options about where you will live and planning your future finances.

If children are involved, you can consider together what arrangements will work best for your children. Our mediators are trained to see your children and give them a voice in the process if you both think this is right and the children agree.

The Government’s Ministry of Justice Voucher Scheme enables us to offer £500 towards each case that involves children.

Family Mediation in the New Forest

The first step is usually to attend an initial meeting to find out if the process is right for you.

Mediation is voluntary. Mediation helps you stay in control. The Mediator’s role is to help you find a solution which works for you both. We help identify those matters you cannot agree on and assist in finding a solution.

Our experienced Mediators are trained to help resolve disputes in relation to all issues faced by separating couples.
