If you are separating or divorcing, family mediation can help you sort out disputes - without involving big legal fees or going through court.
Mediation MK, providing help for separating couples in Milton Keynes and Northampton.
Mediation is not about trying to get you back together. It’s about helping you to make arrangements after you’ve decided to separate. It can also help when you've already separated and need to sort something out.
You and your partner (or ex-partner) explain your concerns and views to each other in the presence of a family mediator who helps you both to reach an agreement.
Mediation MK are family mediators, and are trained to work with people whose relationships have broken down. Our mediators come from professional backgrounds, such as law and healthcare.
Our Mediators will find solutions that both of you can agree on, they will ask questions to understand your situation and, unlike going to court, you'll stay fully in control. No-one can make you do anything against your wishes, and everything will be kept confidential.
Children have the right to a relationship with both parents (as long as it is safe) and their needs are most important. Some of our mediators are trained to include children in discussions but only if both you, your partner and the child agree.
Find out just what we can do to help children and the young through separation or divorce.
If you agree to try mediation, you will need to attend mediation sessions (usually 1-2 hours each). The length and number of sessions will depend on your situation.
When an agreement is reached, the mediator will write it down in a ‘Memorandum of Understanding’ so that everyone is clear about what has been decided.
