If you've got a difficult subject that you need to discuss with someone such as an ex-partner or estranged member of the family, I can assist you by providing a neutral place to meet and by improving the communication and understanding between you. You can then find your own workable solutions to issues such as finance, property and the children.
I don't take sides and I don't make judgements but I will ensure that you make informed decisions. At the conclusion of mediation I wil formally record your agreement so that if you wish, you may take it to your solicitor to have it made legally binding. Typically, child only issues require one to two joint sessions, property and finance may be up to four joint sessions at 90mins per session. I am also qualified to offer Child Consultation so that if your child/children choose (like you) to take part in mediation I should be very happy to work with them.
The National Audit Office state that mediation is much quicker and less costly than the arbitrary route - can be as much as a third of the cost, and has been proven to not only reduce the stress and conflict betweeen the two parties but it ensures that the ongoing parental relationship and co-operation is far longer lasting.
Mediation Information and Assessment Meetings for Family Court Proceedings.
If you are filing a family matter to the Court, an assessment meeting for mediation must have been attended as part of the pre-action protocol. As a Legal Services Commision recognised mediator, I will be able to tell you if you are eligible for legal aid, and if so, mediation will be free of charge.
Fees for private clients, per person, are as follows:
|Child only issues||£90||90 mins|
|Property and Finance issues||£120||90 mins|
|Property, Finance and Children||£150||90 mins|
On a final note, you might like to know that I am a member of National Family Mediation and am accredited by the Family Mediation Council and as with my colleagues, this service and your time spent with me is strictly confidential. If you would like an assessment meeting to decide where you'd like to go from here, please call on our main number and I'll look forward to meeting you soon.
