Mediation helps you resolve conflict and reach agreement on all issues surrounding separation or divorce. It is a voluntary and confidential process which helps you reach joint decisions without the use of courts.

It offers you a safe, neutral place where you and your ex-partner can meet with an impartial mediator to work out plans for the future.

Mediators do not tell you what to do but help you look at different options for sorting things out, so that you reach your own agreements about all aspects of your separation or divorce, including arrangements for children, finances and property.
