Improving communication and the functioning of a family.
We help you make all necessary arrangements and forego costly court procedures.
If you and your partner have separated, it’s likely you’ll need help sorting out finances, childcare and other joint responsibilities.
Coming to us for family mediation means you can do this on neutral ground with an impartial professional who wants the best for you and your family.
Our mediators will help you come to suitable agreements and avoid the high cost of paying a solicitor to sort it out.
Thanks to a government family mediation voucher scheme, if you make an appointment with TLC: Talk, Listen, Change, you will receive £500 off joint sessions when discussing children. Contact us for more information.
What is family mediation?
Family mediation is a form of support for couples that have separated. It helps you negotiate joint finances and other responsibilities, such as children if you have them.
It involves sitting down and speaking with a professional across several sessions, both individually and as a couple, to work out suitable arrangements.
It’s voluntary, flexible, and confidential, plus many people who’ve worked with us found it less stressful than going to court.
Family mediation aims to reduce the cost, pressure and complications of separation.
Why choose family mediation?
We can help you work through a wide variety of issues that include childcare and child maintenance, shared businesses or debt, pensions, and secondary family involvement.
We help you and your former partner improve communications, and we can advise you on matters like divorce.
We try to help you avoid expensive court proceedings. The average cost of contested court proceedings with legal representation is £4,000 – £20,000.
