Family Life Mediation
What is mediation?
Mediation is a voluntary process that allows you to come up with solutions that you will be involved in creating. The mediator is an impartial facilitator who has no decision-making authority.
- Voluntary – all parties must be willing to try mediation and can end the process at any time
- Autonomous – it is the parties who determine the issues to be mediated and the outcomes
- Confidential - mediators are bound by a strict code of confidentiality
- Safe – the mediator ensures the process is fair and free of power imbalances
- Empowering – decisions are made by the parties, not by the mediator
- Effective – agreements are lasting, since they are created by the parties and not by a judge, assessor or arbitrator
Co-parenting, or co-operative parenting makes sense, and we can help you understand terminology like joint custody, sole custody, and shared custody so that you can make informed decisions.
