A Better Way to Divorce: Mediation with Capitol Family Mediation Chigwell

What is Divorce Mediation?

Divorce mediation is a voluntary and confidential process that involves a neutral third-party mediator helping couples to communicate, negotiate, and reach agreements on issues such as separation, child custody, property division, and more. The mediator acts as a facilitator, helping couples to express their needs and concerns while working towards a mutually acceptable solution.

Advantages of Divorce Mediation

  1. Cost-effective – Divorce mediation is typically less expensive than going to court, making it an attractive option for couples who want to avoid lengthy legal battles.

  2. Confidentiality – Unlike court proceedings, divorce mediation is a confidential process that allows couples to resolve disputes without public scrutiny.

  3. Control – Mediation empowers couples to make their own decisions rather than leaving them in the hands of a judge.

  4. Time-saving – Mediation can often resolve disputes quicker than traditional courtroom litigation, allowing couples to move forward with their lives sooner.

How Capitol Family Mediation Works

At Capitol Family Mediation in Chigwell, our experienced mediators work closely with couples to identify the issues at hand, foster communication, and help develop creative solutions that meet everyone’s needs. We offer a safe and supportive environment for couples to work through their conflicts and find common ground.

Our mediation process typically involves the following steps:

  1. Initial Assessment – Our mediators will meet with each spouse individually to assess the situation and determine whether mediation is a suitable option.

  2. Mediation Sessions – We schedule mediation sessions at a time and place that is convenient for everyone involved. During these sessions, our mediators facilitate discussions and encourage open communication.

  3. Agreement – Once an agreement has been reached, we draft a written agreement that outlines the terms of the settlement. This agreement can be submitted to the court for approval if necessary.
