Breaking up is never easy
Making the decision to separate is usually a painful process. It may become all the more traumatic when issues like property division, and deciding how any children will be cared for, need to be considered.
Fighting a divorce case in the court is expensive and time-consuming. It may add to the emotional stress that a couple experiences throughout the process.
That is why today more and more couples are opting for mediation.
What is mediation?
Mediation is a means of resolving a dispute whereby a neutral person, the mediator, helps the disagreeing parties reach a solution during a face-to-face meeting.
As a qualified mediator, it is my role to help you and your partner negotiate an agreement that both of you consider fair enough to accept.
I will assist you to clarify the disputed issues and identify possible options. I may offer an opinion or make a suggestion, but it is not my role to make the final decisions – that is up to you.
Mediation is most effective when both parties to a dispute are prepared to enter the mediation process voluntarily. It works best if they are willing to focus on the present and the future, not the past.
