MAKE YOUR DIVORCE OR FAMILY DISPUTE
A BETTER WAY FOR YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
Mediation is a negotiated, voluntary dispute resolution process.
It gives partners/spouses/co-parents an opportunity to be in control of an amicable, cost effective and much more efficient and tailor-made divorce/separation.
It is a more holistic approach to the issues at hand! It’s not just about the legal issues, but about what feels fair and what is age-appropriate and in the children’s best interest (if any).
The role of the mediators is to provide legal and other relevant information, to enable you to make informed decisions together. The decisions in the room are made by the two of you. The mediators are there to assist with negotiation and to help generate solutions so that an agreement can be reached. They will not simply assess your situation and dictate a solution. You have to live with the outcome - so it makes sense that you make the decisions.
The Mediation Network also recommend a Co-Mediation Model for divorce/separation/resolution of relationship issues, especially where there are children concerned. This means you will have two mediators, one with a legal background and one with a psychology/child development background. This ensure that all aspects around finances, legalities as well as emotional and developmental needs are considered.
After the Intake form has been received by both parties involved as well as an independent confirmation phone call from both parties, the first meeting is scheduled.
Meetings are conducted in accordance to a strict Code of Conduct so that everyone feels heard.
The mediator is merely there to assist in good communication and to provide information as well as a framework for the meetings. The decisions are yours!
Afer the discusions have concluded, your solution is formulated and put in writing.
Both parties are entitled and encouraged to gain legal counsil before during and after the mediation process, to ensure that everyone's rights are protected.
MEDIATION NETWORK offer a unique system of mediators, all very uniquely qualified to deal with your particular case. We believe in a dual-mediation model, which means you will have two mediators available with different skills and different backgrounds to ensure that a higher skill level and level of unbiased assistance is awarded to you.
MEDIATION NETWORK are also connected to a list of other professionals (therapists, accountants, counsellors and attorneys) to assist with any additional assistance you may require.
Only the parties involved are present for your mediation, as well as the two mediators.
