Mediation is an alternative to going to Court. It involves you and your former partner sitting down with an independent third person (a “mediator”) who will give both of you an opportunity to tell your side of the story and attempt to help you both work towards resolving the issues in dispute. Mediation does not always result in a settlement of all issues, but it may help you better understand where the other person is coming from, or find some “common ground”.

If you have any questions about mediation and its suitability in your situation, come and see us.
