Capitol Family Mediation Service Finchley for Effective Conflict Resolution

Children and financial mediation Finchley

In life, a lot of things go wrong and sometimes relationships break down. When spouses cannot solve their differences, they may decide to head to divorce court. This step is, however, not the best at all times. Family mediation is one option that such couples should consider before involving other parties.

At Capital Family Mediation, we provide services that enable spouses to come to amicable agreements.

Solving Disputes

Disputes between families can affect a lot of people. Families have always been the foundation of great societies. When two spouses decide to separate, it triggers a chain reaction in the family structure. Children are some of the first casualties of such situations. A lot of negative feelings may arise and affect children well into adulthood.

Family mediation is a way to ensure that there are effective ways of dealing with disputes. At Capitol Family Mediation, we provide well-trained mediators that know how to handle sensitive situations. Our intention for everyone in the family to get out of such a situation with the least amount of damage.

Who Attends a Mediation Session?

In most cases, a divorcing, separating mediation conference is attended by the couple and the mediator. However, other members of the family such as the children may also be allowed to attend. In such a case, a private sitting is organized for the mediator and the children; in absence of the parents. Afterward, the mediator is expected to express the wishes and feelings of the kids to their parents. Alternatively, the kids could also be allowed to express themselves to their parents directly, in presence of a mediator.

Can Solicitors be Involved in the Mediation Process?

Lawyers play a vital role when couples want to reach agreement during this process. They are not present during all meetings but are occasionally allowed to attend; most importantly to help to resolve dispute over finances or property. At the end of the intercession process, the couples normally reach agreed proposals. At this point, the couple is advised to seek legal advice individually especially if it is on financial matters. Also, lawyers will be of much help if the client would like the proposals agreed on to be incorporated into a draft consent order. This makes the proposal agreed on to be legally binding.

How much is a Mediation Process?

Now that you are divorcing separating you may be on a budget. For this reason, you will be seeking to hire a mediator at a pocket-friendly price. Our mediators charge couples depending on their needs; rather the extent to which they seek their services. Mostly, couples share the costs equally making the process, even more, cost effective. If you are no longer in a working family setup and you need to reach an agreement with your spouse, contact our information service for more details on how to hire a mediator.

Legal Requirements

In England, there is a law that requires individuals seeking rulings on issues involving financial matters or children to first attend mediation information and assessment meetings (MIAM).

When two people decide that they want to disentangle their lives from one another, then a counselor or the court may decide that they should get mediation services first.

There are exceptions to this rule, though, such as in cases of domestic violence.

Options Available

Giving a Voice

Mediation is an excellent opportunity for individuals to raise issues that they may otherwise not highlight in a court of law. There are a lot of reasons for family breakdowns, and we believe that it is crucial to understand the causes of disputes to allow us to provide lapsing solutions. The aim of our mediation services is to give individuals a platform to express themselves. Some parents forget that their children may want their opinions heard. During mediation, we make that possible. It is why we insist on having individual meetings as well as group meetings.

Facilitating Communication

The key to any dispute resolution is effective communication. Some spouses decide to divorce without even talking to each other about what went wrong. At Capitol Family Mediation we are big on quality communication. We encourage family members to talk to one another. You may find out there is a chance to salvage some relationships just by communicating. When a case involves children, parents have to understand that they will always have something that binds them. Keeping the doors of communication open ensures that children don’t have to suffer through the bad blood between parents.

One of the most sensitive issues when dealing with divorce is child custody. If parents can’t come to an agreement about how they will raise their children, then family mediation services will come in handy. Fighting over who gets custody can take a toll on children, and that is something we like to avoid at Capitol Family mediation.

What we Do

With our mediation services, families get faster solutions to their problems. In cases where lawyers and courts get involved, the process may take a long time and relationships may continue to fall apart. Our primary role is to ensure that families address their problems in the fastest ways possible.

We don’t dwell in the past, and that is one of the ways we encourage progress. For families to move forward, it helps to look into the future. Assigning blame will not do much to remedy situations. Our mediators concentrate on reaching the best solutions for all parties.

With Capitol Family Mediation, you have all the control. We strive to make the process very comfortable. You can tell us when you want to start the meetings and make the call when you want to stop. We give you control over what happens and how you wish to go about the mediation. The role of our mediators is to guide you through the process and help resolve the issues in your relationship. A point to remember is that mediators cannot help with the emotional distress that family members may be suffering. All they can do is facilitate dispute resolution and provide guidance.
