What is Mediation?

Mediation is a process in which a neutral third party - the mediator - helps you and your partner to reach decisions for yourselves.

The role of the mediator is to work with the couple, cutting through the anger and hurt they both feel and focusing their attention on the issues that need to be resolved.

Instead of using lawyers to negotiate on your behalf, each of you seeks to work out an amicable agreement, which is fair and just. The mediator does not tell you what to do.

Who is it For?

Couples who are ending their relationship, whether married or not. It is also for those who have separated and divorced and, in changing circumstances, want to work out new arrangements.
