Does Mediation Work?

Of course! Mediation is a great alternative to court when trying to resolve family disputes. Mediation gives you more control over the outcome. You can work with a mediator to reach a an agreement on child custody, financial matters, and other important issues, that is tailored to everyone’s needs.

What is Online Mediation?

In online mediation, the process is conducted using a video calling platform, such as Zoom. The parties and the mediator do not meet face-to-face. Online mediation works the same as the traditional face-to-face process, by talking to the mediator and discussing your concerns regarding childcare arrangements and/on financial issues with your ex-partner.

What issues will mediation resolve?

Mediation can be used to discuss any issues such as:

  • Child contact
  • Living arrangements
  • Holidays
  • Special occasions
  • Reaching financial settlements
  • Sorting out what will happen to the marital or jointly owned home
  • Dividing savings and other assets- i.e. the car.
