Dealing with divorce, attempting to solve childcare disagreements or financial issues with an estranged partner can be stressful and time-consuming. And if you need to head to court, it can also be costly. To reach a solution in a way that doesn’t cost the earth, it’s a good idea to turn to mediation.

Mediation is a tool that involves effective communication between two or more parties before an external and impartial mediator. The goal of mediation is for all sides to come to an agreement regarding the issue at hand, whether you’re parents discussing child custody or a couple deciding who gets what after a divorce. One of the best things about using mediation is that you can avoid having to go to court, meaning that you can cut the cost of solving your problem.

During the process of mediation, the mediator will help all parties voice their concerns and make decisions based on their specific needs until a Memorandum of Understanding has been reached. The Memorandum officially records the agreement and outlines the next steps of action that all parties must take. It can also be made into a binding contract by the court if necessary. Following mediation, the ideal outcome is for all parties to come to an appropriate solution that can be effectively maintained. Having your say in a calm and relaxed mediation meeting means that you don’t have to aggressively fight your corner in a stressful court situation.
