Mediation is a method of resolving disputes on relationship breakdown, about issues concerning the children or financial settlement. It involves meetings with an impartial mediator who provides a framework and assistance to the parties in reaching their own agreements. Legal Aid is still available for the mediation process.
This can sometimes be an excellent way of reaching agreement, but you are likely to feel a lot more comfortable, and achieve a better result, if you know your potential “legal entitlement”. Also any financial settlement reached in mediation will not be automatically legally binding on divorce. We can help you make that divorce settlement legally binding.
