Barclay DeVere Family Mediation Service Milton Keynes
Mediation – Sorting out Disputes but with a Gentle Touch
Are you in the middle of an unsavoury litigation crisis? You’ll know the delays, high costs and frustrations associated with the trial of family matters. People who have been through litigation find that more is being spent on litigation than the costs to settle the matter. A far better approach is mediation which brings about a quick solution with disputes over property, disputes over custody of children and even pets or disputes over divorce and much more.
Barclay DeVere Mediation Milton Keynes Wraps Up Disputes Quickly
Mediation is a process for resolving disputes. It simply involves a discussion with all parties concerned instead of the presentation of witnesses and evidence in a trial or arbitration. Instead of a drawn out process, with mediation the entire process is wrapped up in a day or even less.
Private, Confidential and Amicable Discussions
The mediation session is private and confidential and no records are made of the proceedings. It can be far more cost-effective to meet at a time and place where all parties can relax and where all concerns surrounding the dispute are discussed freely and openly and concluded in a way which leaves everyone satisfied.
An Unbiased Intermediary
The role of the mediator is to simply act as an unbiased intermediary. Their aim is to settle difference amicably with both sides without the need for stressful and court intervention.
Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting Milton Keynes
The Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting (MIAM) is the first step towards getting a divorce or separation order in England and Wales.
This step was made mandatory since April 2014, since the courts and the government felt that mediation would offer many families a better way to resolve differences than the traditional court process.
At the MIAM meeting, a specially qualified family mediator explains about the mediation process, and various other options available.
The mediator asks questions to get an understanding of the applicant’s special circumstances, and in the process help the applicant decide for themselves the best way to solve outstanding disputes related to the marriage breakdown.
The meeting is held on a one-to-one basis, in a confidential manner.
Usually, a marriage breakdown is not a simple case of both parties deciding to go separate ways. It brings to the fore several issues such as custody of children, division of money and assets, issues related to family members, and more.
It takes the services of an experienced and skilled mediator, to ensure that all such outstanding issues are addressed to the satisfaction of all parties, and make the mediation a success. Barclay DeVere MK is the best choice.
Divorce is naturally stressful but by using mediation as a way of resolving your divorce issues you get to have a more smooth process. With this method, divorce becomes less confrontational and it is much cheaper compared to attending court sessions that you have to pay some fees.
However, mediation can be a little challenging but it is one of the best ways to settle divorce conflicts. The divorce couple comes up with the decision of involving a mediator whose role is to help the two come up with a decision that will leave them satisfied.
The most delicate part of a divorce is the children involved. It is very important that the interest of the children is put first before anything else. The two parties have to agree on the method they will use to co-parent. They also decide on how they will share any property they have.
The whole process is less-strenuous and at the end of the day the final decision is after the divorce couple have come to an agreement. It is more of a method that offers you communicating opportunities and getting to reality-check them.
