This is because it is quicker, less expensive, and less stressful than court proceedings. Together with the mediator, you set the agenda, and you retain control of the outcome.
Following separation or decision to divorce, especially if there is a breakdown in trust, it can be difficult to make arrangements. A family mediator, who acts as an entirely neutral impartial third party, who does not take sides can help to facilitate difficult conversations, and assist you to structure arrangements that are unique to your particular circumstances, whether these relate to financial matters, children, or the future of your relationship. A family mediator will manage the process so that it is less overwhelming, and will help to reduce conflict and improve communication helping you to move forward.
