Mediation might be the right process for you and your partner if reaching agreement is important to both of you. However, talking to each other about such sensitive issues is too difficult or follows the same unproductive path.
What mediation is:
- A discussion with your partner with someone there to focus the conversation on what will help you reach agreement
- A process which may more comprehensively deal with the issues that affect your family
- A process which allows you to each agree on compromises that best suit your family
- A process which may open the way for better communication in the future
Successful mediation relies on compromise but is greatly assisted by participants knowing where they stand legally. There can often be a number of options, and within mediation we look at as many options as possible to identify the one that best suits you.
