Listen here to Helen Noble, Associate Solicitor in our Sevenoaks Family team speaking about how Mediation works, when she was interviewed on Channel Radio – Money Talks.

The best solutions are those which you work out together

When relationships break down, communicating with your former partner or spouse can seem very difficult.  The easiest issues can seem like huge mountains to overcome. You may have concerns about your finances or children, or both which are causing emotions to run high.

Sometimes you need help to get the talking started and focus on what really matters to you and your family.  That’s where Mediation comes in.

Mediators listen to find out what is important to you and help you to make your own choices and decisions about the best way forward.  Mediators will help you reach practical solutions which work for you, and if you are parents, for your children.  They do not take sides and they must give impartial advice to help you make your own choices about the best way forward.

Mediation is an opportunity to speak with your partner in a non-confrontational environment.  You will probably have a number of sessions together with the mediator –three to five one to two hour sessions are common. You can consult your own lawyer at any time, to take legal advice on what is best for you. When you are both satisfied with the decisions you have reached, your lawyer will then complete the legal formalities.

Why choose mediation?

Mediation can:

At the end of your Mediation, your Mediator will provide you with a summary document setting out any agreements you reach together with a financial summary of your affairs (if relevant). You will then be able to seek independent legal advice on your agreement and your solicitor can complete the legal formalities.  Mediation is a cost effective solution for couples who wish to minimise their legal costs and reach an agreement that is practical and fair.
