Mediation Procedure

Mediation enables a separating couple to resolve issues and details of their separation or divorce. Mediation gives couples the power to devise their own agreement and they are in control of the timing, process and outcome.

It is important to remember that anything you wish to be resolved you need to raise with the Mediator.

If a separating couple has children this will be the first matter to sort out. Often a parenting plan is agreed. They can then Mediate on financial issues such as the division of the capital assets and responsibility for any debts and whether one party needs financial support on a monthly basis from the other.

If you do not have children the Mediation will be to resolve the financial matters.

Sometimes couples Mediate on the divorce itself, for example, who will divorce who and on what fact.

Mediation can be individualised to suit whatever issues the couple choose to discuss.

There are ground rules to Mediation which need to be agreed beforehand. It is not appropriate for people to carry on their arguments and disputes with the Mediator expected to referee. Both are expected to treat each other with respect and attend Mediation with the focus on achieving a solution and outcome not a continuation of grievances.
