Mediation is a voluntary, non-binding method of resolving disputes. The parties in the dispute are helped to reach a solution by an independent and neutral third party (or parties).

It is an ideal way to keep family law out of the Courts, keep costs down and maintain better communication into the future with your ex-partner. This greatly benefits any situation where children are involved.
