Mediation is sometimes confused with relationship counselling - In actual fact mediation is not designed to explore whether it is possible or desirable to save the relationship. Mediation is instead designed to assist when there has been or will be a separation and both parties involved want to deal with the practicalities of that separation as amicably and productively as possible.
The key difference with mediation is that we would help both parties together, as opposed to one individual. This means that as mediators we are impartial and therefore cannot give either party legal advice but we can give a lot of legal information, using our skills as legal advisors.
Mediation can deal with the following:
- Arrangements for formalising the separation
- Living arrangements
- Financial arrangements
- Children arrangements
- Communication difficulties
If you are interested in mediation once you contact us we will need to contact your partner to invite them to mediation. If you are both willing to mediate, we shall firstly arrange initial meetings with you both individually, and then secondly, arrange the joint meetings to discuss the issues you want to address. You will set the agenda for mediation meetings so you will be able to give priority to the most important issues you are seeking to resolve.
Our mediators at Eric Robinson are Beverley Pym and Vicki Rawlins. Mediation can be conducted at any of our offices. Mediation costs are on a fixed fee basis.
If you are interested in mediation, please contact Beverley Pym on 01489 788922 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
