Family Mediation

How family mediation can help you

Family mediation helps families in conflict understand and communicate with each other better so they can make practical plans for the future. The trained mediator understands the complexity of family life, separation, divorce and family restructuring. She will not take sides, make judgments or give guidance. She works with families in conflict to help them communicate more effectively with one another and consider options that will help them work through their differences.

Mediation can help minimize conflict, improve family life and help avoid long, painful and expensive legal battles. If you do go to court, even at that stage you might be first encouraged to attend a mediation service.
