Family Mediation is a voluntary and confidential process which helps joint decision making without the use of courts. Due to recent changes in government thinking, family mediation is slowly becoming the preferred method to resolve and prevent disputes. It is a legally priviliged process which means anything said in mediation cannot be disclosed in court unless both parties agree. Confidentiality does not apply, however, if there are significant concerns about the well-being and safety of children or adults - in such cases the appropriate agency will be contacted.
The mediators do not tell you what to do. They are there to help you reach your own agreements concerning all aspects of your seperation or divorce e.g. children, finances, property etc. Freely negotiated agreements can help restore communication, understanding and trust.
There is a referral form for this service available on the website but you can just contact the local office and ask to be referred in.
Any person going through separation, divorce, any grandparent, child, teenager, friend or relative can ring the service for advice about children, finances,property etc.
