What is mediation?

Family mediation is a voluntary and confidential process involving a couple who have separated, and an impartial mediator. Mediation is designed to assist two people reach a negotiated solution to their dispute, whether it relates to the children’s arrangements, divorce and/or financial matters.

The role of the mediator is to facilitate dialogue between the couple, and identify potential and practical solutions.

Mediation is not a form of couples counselling - instead it focuses on the practicalities of separation now and in the future to include the division of assets and sharing the care of any children. Family mediation is not designed to replace legal advice; it is common and strongly encouraged by the mediator for each person to obtain independent legal advice outside of the process. A mediator can provide legal information.

Clients often choose mediation as they want creative and bespoke solutions, and greater control over the process compared with what can be achieved in litigation. The process is also more cost effective as the clients share the mediator’s costs as opposed to each client paying a solicitor separately.  

Mediation generally preserves better relationships between two people as you avoid solicitor correspondence (which can at times be acrimonious), which is particularly important where children are involved.

I work flexibly and can offer you mediation appointments at any of SpainWilliams' meeting rooms in Sevenoaks, Kings Hill, Maidstone, Tunbridge Wells or Ashford.

If you would like more information, please telephone Kate Lovegrove on 01959 580680.
