Mediation - Finding solutions together

Mediation is a recognised, voluntary and confidential form of dispute resolution for separating or separated families who may be experiencing difficulties in sorting out arrangements associated with a relationship breakdown. A professionally trained mediator offers help and guidance by talking things through and in finding practical solutions without the need, added expense or worry of litigation or Court intervention.

What is a Mediator?

A Mediator is an independent trained professional who is neutral and impartial. Their role is to help parties to reach their own informed and workable decisions by way of discussion and negotiations.

What services do we offer?

At Franklins we offer mediation to families experiencing difficulties before, during or after separation. We welcome all family situations including: separating couples, grandparents, or anyone experiencing disputes surrounding separating or separated parties. Mediation usually takes place between the two parties and lasts between one to three sessions lasting approximately 90 minutes each time.

During these sessions our mediator will help you to look at the practicalities of your particular situation and facilitate open discussions on how you might be able to move forward on a variety of issues including, but not restricted to:

  • Divorce or Civil Partnership separation
  • Financial and Property arrangements
  • Child arrangements including Parenting Plans

Every family is unique and it is our aim and promise that we will treat you with respect and integrity, whatever the issues are.
