Barclay DeVere Family Mediation Service Croydon
Mediation can help you avoid the stress and cost of court and find a settlement that works for both parties. A neutral mediator will facilitate a mutual, voluntary dialogue allowing both parties to reach an agreement.
Mediation works because, unlike in court, agreement is decided by the parties rather than a judge and gives you more control over what happens.
Why Barclay DeVere Croydon?
When divorcing parties take a divorce case to court for settlement, there is a need to hire lawyers for each partner and pay all the expenses involved personally.
Nevertheless, if the divorcing partners decide to use mediation services, they will just pay the amount of money the mediator asks for. Therefore, managed divorce service is less expensive than litigation since it saves you money.
As a result, mediation services are important because they are voluntary. No one is forced to attend a mediation service session.
In addition, our mediators are impartial and cannot be involved in taking sides since they are well trained. For our services, you own the decision-making process where the outcome is based on your decision.
If you compare our rates with those of using a solicitor or court, mediation services are way too cheap. Another advantage of mediation is that a healthy relationship between the divorcing parties will be maintained for future parenting in issues revolving around the children and finances.
Finally, for mediation services, whether the decision makers are in the same room or separate rooms, the decision-making process is speeded up.
Many prefer seeking mediation to court because:
Mediation is an informal meeting with all the disputing parties present. It is a non-stressful way for all parties to have all the facts and assumptions aired.
With all the information out in the open, mutually agreed upon settlements are reached.
Even children can attend, and they are encouraged to talk in a quiet and safe environment without interference from either parent.
Mediation is all about providing a safe and controlled environment for everyone to air their grievances and for the mediator to work towards a fair settlement.
