Family Mediation Ealing’s findings are as follows: When a couple comes to the decision to end their marriage and go their separate ways, it can be a scary and challenging process to work out the specifics of child custody and visitation arrangements with the ex-spouse of the other parent. This can be especially true if the couple has children together. These preparations will not only have an effect on your living arrangements, but more crucially, they will have an effect on the living arrangements of your children. This is of the utmost importance. As a parent, your number one goal should be to look out for your children’s happiness and ensure that they are healthy. Because of this, the absolute last thing you should do is make the lives of your children even more difficult during a period that is already difficult by becoming engaged in contentious circumstances with the other parent. Doing so would be the worst thing you could do for your kids. If you and your ex-partner are having trouble communicating in a way that is productive and you feel that this may be the path that you and your ex-partner are headed down, you and your ex-partner may find that mediation is the most effective method to move on with the situation.
The Family Mediation Service, to put it succinctly, is what we’re talking about here. Ealing is a process that consists of multiple conversations that are held between the two parents in the presence of a neutral third person who acts as a facilitator for the dialogue and encourages you to come to a resolution to the argument that you are having. This conversation takes place in the presence of an Ealing counsellor. If during the course of the mediation process the two of you are able to reach an understanding regarding, for instance, the amount of time you will each spend with your children, then this will be memorialized in a memorandum of understanding that will be drawn up between the two of you. If you are unable to reach an understanding regarding this matter, then the mediation process will continue.
The Methods of Mediation and Conciliation Employed with Families Ealing, which is an alternate technique for the resolution of disputes, allows parties to avoid having to go to court, which can be both time-consuming and costly. This is one of the advantages of using Ealing as opposed to the traditional approach. Mediators are able to offer both parents objective guidance and assistance as they go through the process of determining child custody and visitation arrangements that are in the best interests of the whole family. They are also able to ensure the construction of a framework that can be maintained in order to decrease the likelihood of their being in conflict in the future when this becomes necessary.
Mediation may be useful for divorced parents for these reasons:
- Because both parents are present at the meetings, the plans are up for discussion and may be reworked to accommodate the preferences of either parent in order to arrive at a conclusion that is acceptable to everyone. This is necessary in order to reach a conclusion that is in the best interest of the child. This is something that has to be done in order to arrive at a choice that will be acceptable to everyone concerned.
- It uses a child-centric approach, which means that the point of view of the children is prioritized throughout the entirety of the process. This ensures that the best interests of the children are served. This guarantees that the children’s requirements will be satisfied.
- Taking a dispute to court is typically a time-consuming and drawn-out process that may be sidestepped by mediating issues instead, which can save a significant amount of time in many cases. Due to the fact that going to court might take many months or even longer, this choice must be avoided whenever it’s practicable to do so. It is possible that as a result of this, a financial burden that is less onerous than what would be the case if the matter were taken to court may arise.
- It is our responsibility as mediators to help both parents in an impartial manner in order to support the supply of appropriate legal information and direction that is to the mutual advantage of all parties concerned. The fact that clients typically bring their own attorneys to the mediation session means that mediators will assist clients in understanding the alternatives that are open to them and will reality check any findings that have been issued.
