How family mediation works

Family mediation is a process where both parties in a family dispute come together to discuss and resolve the issue with the help of a neutral third party mediator.

The mediator acts as a facilitator, guiding the conversation and helping both parties to understand each other’s perspectives, needs and interests.

The goal of mediation is to reach an agreement that meets everyone’s concerns and needs. During the process, each party can present their perspective, provide evidence, explain their goals, and make proposals for solutions.

Once an agreement is reached, the mediator will draft up a written document that outlines it and both parties can sign it if they agree to its terms.
