Core principles of mediation

Voluntary – this means you can choose if you want to mediate and can decide to stop at any time, the mediator can also decide to mediate or stop owing to conflicts of interest or a belief that they or mediation is not appropriate for your case.

Impartial – Mediators are there to facilitate the clients in exploring and discussing the issues to find a resolution that supports moving forward, their personal views are not relevant to your case. You the clients make the decisions.

Legal advice is not given – The Mediator will provide you with relevant legal information to support you in understanding the legal process and making decisions that will meet legal requirements. The mediator will suggest their clients seek further advice from their solicitor or other professionals on child and financial matters.
