Family Mediation Week 18-22 January, 2021
18th January 2021 by Gemma Burden
Today marks the start of Family Mediation Week aimed to raise awareness of mediation and how it can help separating families manage their issues collaboratively and productively. Following is the Family Mediation Week statement which outlines why this week is so important;
Family mediation aims to encourage separating couples to sit down together and work out solutions to the financial and family-based issues that can be part of separation or divorce. The goal is for both partners to come to an amicable agreement which suits everyone involved, avoiding the costs – literally and figuratively – of bitter battles in court. Mediation can help to secure a far better outcome for couples and children – it tends to be quicker, less costly and less combative than resolving issues through court or solicitors
Many couples going through a separation or divorce don’t know that family mediation is an option for them, or are unaware of the advantages of mediation over its alternatives. The attached pdf discusses how Mediation works.
