Welcome to Advantage Mediation.
We provide mediation services to families and individuals.
- What is Mediation?
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 mediator ?
Mediators are trained to help resolve disputes over all issues faced by 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 and will identify those issues you can’t agree on and help you to try and reach a solution which is acceptable to you both.
Mediators are neutral and will not take sides, so they cannot give advice to either of you. They will usually recommend that you obtain legal advice alongside the mediation process and will guide you as to when this should happen. Advantage Mediation works with a Resolution Trained 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.
