Mediation is a process which helps couples who have decided to separate or divorce to talk things through with an independent and neutral facilitator.
Mediation has very real benefits:
We will consider with you whether mediation is the right option for you and your spouse/partner, and you will be asked to complete a simple information form.
There will be a series of meetings at which you set the agenda to discuss the issues that are important to you. Most people require between 3 – 6 sessions of about 1½ - 2 hours.
During the process you can consult with your own lawyer for legal advice on the issues that are raised in mediation
At the end of the process we will provide you with a summary of the proposals that you reach and details of your financial information.
Mediation is possibly the most cost effective method of resolving disputes following relationship breakdown. We offer a fixed fee initial appointment, at which you can discuss whether mediation is suitable for you. Our charges for this meeting are £125.00 plus VAT. If you decide to proceed with mediation our normal hourly rate for mediation is £125.00 plus VAT for each person per hour. We offer a reduced fee for people on incomes below £30,000 of £100.00 per hour plus VAT.
There may be additional charges if we need to obtain other expert advice or valuations.
