This week is Family Mediation Week – a week focussing on spreading the word about the benefits of family mediation, aiming to raise awareness of mediation and how it can help separating families manage their issues collaboratively and productively.
Please see the Family Mediation Week website for more information about family mediation and of the events planned for next week.
The week has been organised by the Family Mediation Council and is also being promoted by Resolution. There will be a series of articles and videos released throughout the week, on the Family Mediation Week website.
The week is sponsored by Our Family Wizard.
Family mediation aims to encourage separating couples to sit down together and work out solutions to the financial and family-based issues that can be part of separation or divorce. The goal is for both partners to come to an amicable agreement which suits everyone involved, avoiding the costs – literally and figuratively – of bitter battles in court. Mediation can help to secure a far better outcome for couples and children – it tends to be quicker, less costly and less combative than resolving issues through court or solicitors.
Many couples going through a separation or divorce don’t know that family mediation is an option for them or are unaware of the advantages of mediation over its alternatives.
