The breakdown of a relationship is undoubtedly one of the most stressful things a person can experience. It’s often made more difficult when it comes to the division of property, assets and access rights to children when the two parties cannot agree.
During such an emotionally charged time, Family Mediation can help to provide clarity, resolving the issues that arise from divorce and separation.
As members of Resolution, our Family Law teams, offering family mediation in both York and Lincoln, place special emphasis on the importance of mediation in helping to achieve a positive outcome for you and your family.
A voluntary and confidential process, mediation provides an open space to discuss options face to face with the benefit of an impartial mediator, and without being legally bound to any settlement, unless you choose to formalise your agreement. This freedom makes it easier to find a solution that suits all parties rather than it being dictated by a court.
Because mediation encourages you to work together to find solutions rather than fight against each other, it will help you continue to communicate effectively with each other in the future; this is particularly beneficial where children are involved.
