The Divorce Mediation Process

Divorce Mediators help you to resolve legal issues that might arise during the divorce process, such as arrangements for the children or finances. Mediation is not the same as legal advice or counselling and your solicitor would not be present. They will work impartially to help find a resolution that satisfies both parties.

How does Divorce Mediation Work?

You and your partner discuss the issues and agree financial arrangements and or arrangements for the children with a mediator. This usually involves three to five sessions.

Once an agreement is reached your proposals are drawn up in a memorandum of understanding. This is not the same as a court order. You can see solicitors in between mediation sessions if you wish and if at the end of the mediation you would like a binding agreement or order then solicitors can prepare this.
