Children and financial mediation
In life, a lot of things can go wrong and sometimes relationships break down. When spouses cannot solve their differences, they may decide to head to divorce court. However, this is not the best or only solution for every family. Mediation is one option that couples should consider before involving other parties.
At Capital Family Mediation, we provide services that enable spouses to come to amicable agreements.
Who Attends a Mediation Session?
Disputes between families can affect a lot of people. When two spouses decide to separate, it triggers a chain reaction in the family structure. Children are some of the first casualties of such situations. A lot of negative feelings may arise and affect children well into adulthood.
Family mediation is a way to ensure that there are effective ways of dealing with disputes. At Capitol Family Mediation, we provide well-trained mediators that know how to handle sensitive situations. Our intention for everyone in the family to get out of such a situation with the least amount of stress or damage.
In most cases, a divorcing or separating couple and the mediator attend the mediation conference. However, other members of the family such as the children may also be allowed to attend. In such a case, a private sitting is organised for the mediator and the children; in absence of the parents. Afterwards, our mediator explains the wishes and feelings of the kids to their parents. Alternatively, the kids could also be allowed to express themselves to their parents directly, in presence of a mediator.
Capitol Family Mediation help with resolving issues and you maintain the controle of decision making
Can Solicitors be Involved in the Mediation Process?
Lawyers play a vital role when couples want to reach an agreement during this process. They are not present during all meetings but are occasionally allowed to attend; most importantly to help to resolve disputes over finances or property. At the end of the intercession process, couples normally reach an agreed proposal. At this point, the couple is advised to seek legal advice individually especially if it is on financial matters. Also, lawyers will be of much help if the client would like the proposals agreed on to be incorporated into a draft consent order. This makes the proposal agreed on to be legally binding.
How much is a Mediation Process?
Now that you are divorcing you may be on a budget. For this reason, you will be seeking to hire a mediator at a pocket-friendly price. Our mediators charge couples depending on their needs; rather the extent to which they seek their services. Mostly, couples share the costs equally making the process, even more, cost effective. If you are no longer in a working family setup and you need to reach an agreement with your spouse, contact our information service for more details on how to hire a mediator.
My Solicitor is saying i need try mediation first
In England, there is a law that requires individuals seeking rulings on issues involving financial matters or children to first attend mediation information and assessment meetings (MIAM).
When two people decide that they want to disentangle their lives from one another, then a counselor or the court may decide that they should get mediation services first.
There are exceptions to this rule, though, such as in cases of domestic violence.
