Frequently Asked Questions. 


What is Family Mediation?


 Family Mediation is an independent dispute resolution process.  This is sometimes called supported negotiation. Mediation can be used instead of going to court or it can be used alongside the court process.


What is a Family Mediator? 


Family Mediators are trained to help resolve disputes over all issues faced by Families and separating couples, or specific issues such as arrangements for any children. Your mediator will meet with each of you.  The first meeting is usually separate but after that meetings are usually together. Your Family Mediator will identify those issues you can’t agree on and help you to try and reach a solution which is acceptable to you both.


Family Mediators are neutral and will not take sides.  Family Mediators cannot give advice to either of you. You may wish to obtain legal advice alongside the mediation process . Your Family mediator can guide you as to if this is necessary and when is the most effective point for you to take legal advice.  You will work with a Resolution Trained Family Mediator  who can provide you  with general legal information.  This information will be given to both of you within the mediation if this is appropriate. 


What is The Family Mediation Council? 


The Family Mediation Council (FMC) sets standards for family mediation. Your Family Mediator  is registered with the Family Mediation Council  which sets the highest professional standards for mediation to be undertaken with families.
