If you have decided to separate and are looking at the best way of resolving issues regarding your finances and/or how you spend time with your children then mediation provides a cost effective way and quick way of reaching a settlement.
Embarking on a lengthy and expensive legal battle often creates additional stress and hostility. Mediation can make the process far less confrontational whilst ultimately achieving the same outcome.
Typically, the cost of the mediation process is between 1/5th and 1/10th of that spent instructing a solicitor and negotiating a settlement through traditional means. This comparison becomes even more stark if court proceedings are issued. Spending your money wisely at this difficult time means more for you both to share or provide for your children.
Mediation also offers flexibility in terms of the speed of the process and is ideally suited to remote meetings which avoids the need for both people to travel to a central meeting venue.
