Use of Mediation
Our approach at Franklins is to resolve family problems in a manner that minimises dispute and personal strain, both emotionally and financially. We believe that in most instances, settlements can be made through rational discussion and reasonable concession. We promote this approach to keep cost and conflict to a minimum. Mediation sees the parties meeting in a controlled environment with a neutral person known as a mediator who will then assist the parties in trying to resolve their issues in a face to face meeting. A mediator will always recommend that both parties seek their own independent legal advice.
