Finding a Solution through your Separation

Navigating Separation or Divorce with Family Mediation: A Path to Constructive Resolution

Couples who are intent on getting a divorce or separation can either use a mediator or go through the whole court process. Most couples opt to get solicitors to help them get the best outcome from the divorce or the separation. A solicitor cannot act in the best interest of both parties and as such, the couple needs two lawyers to help them with the divorce process.

The family mediation process typically begins with an initial consultation, where couples meet with the mediator to discuss their concerns, goals, and expectations. The mediator explains the mediation process, clarifies roles and responsibilities, and establishes ground rules to ensure a productive and respectful dialogue.

During your mediation session with Just Divorce Mediation Mansfield, couples engage in discussions guided by the mediator, who will help identify issues, explore options, and negotiate agreements. The mediator encourages listening, and assists couples in overcoming obstacles to a resolution.

As agreements are reached, the mediator helps couples document their decisions in a written agreement that outlines the terms and conditions of their settlement. Once finalized, the agreement can be submitted to the court for approval, providing a legally binding framework for moving forward.
