FAQ: What is mediation in a divorce? What does it involve?

Posted on: 30 April 2018 by Goodwins Family Law Solicitors

During divorce proceedings, mediation is a way to discuss the separation peacefully and fairly – in a neutral setting – so you and your partner can both have your say. The goal is to make arrangements for different aspects of the divorce.

A mediation involves you and your partner meeting with a mediator, who will help to conduct the discussion to ensure it remains constructive. It’s an opportunity to discuss difficult topics that you feel may be impossible to fairly discuss otherwise. Successful mediation – this may require multiple mediation meetings – will end with an agreement being drawn up (‘memorandum of understanding’), which you will then take to your solicitor.

Goodwins Family Law can certainly aid with your mediation requirements. You can get in touch with us today to book an initial fixed fee consultation for a confidential discussion and we’ll be happy to help. We are located in Harrow, London, with on site car parking and accessible from public transport links.

Alternatively, if you are overseas we can arrange a Skype call with you if it is more convenient.
