You will initially be seen separately by a Mediator so that you can both be satisfied that mediation is right for you. If you are both happy to continue with mediation the process will be:

  • Up to five subsequent sessions can follow, depending on the complexity of the issues to be discussed.
  • The day to day care arrangements for your children will be considered at the first session along with any other pressing issues.
  • After that the finances are considered. This will involve information and documents being gathered together in an open and    co-operative atmosphere in the hope that you can find a solution that suits you both.

"Thank you for your support, kindness and advice. I understand why your firm is so popular in Basingstoke - you really try to help people and tailor your services in accordance with people's needs as well as financial situation. It was your kindness which gave me that feeling of your sincere support, feeling that you were on my side and ultimately the feeling that everything will be fine. I really appreciate that."
