What is Mediation?

Mediation is…..

  • A voluntary process to help separated or separating couples to resolve disputes relating to children or financial matters
  • Mediation has been proven to be cheaper, faster and more effective than court proceedings
  • Mediation offers a safe and professional environment to have a discussion and not an argument with an impartial mediator present
  • Parties will make their own decisions about their future and that of their children
  • The modern, practical and cost effective option

Mediation is not…..

  • Reconciliation
  • Counselling or therapy
  • An excuse for not addressing the real issues to be addressed and resolved

Paul Dodds Law no longer offers mediation. You can find a mediator near where you live on the website of the Family Mediators Association.
