Time – Resolve Quickly using Mediation

You will be able to settle disputes, agree child arrangements and reach a financial settlement quickly and without the need for legal intervention.  Using a legal service, such as a solicitor, may mean your case will take months to conclude and then it might still require the courts to make a judgment.

Using mediation, the process can start the same day or within a couple of days of your call or email.  We have many instances of helping couples to reach agreement and settlement within a month of contacting our service.  One of the many benefits of using the Family Mediation & Counselling Service is that we offer evening and weekend appointments, making it convenient for you to attend meetings.

Cost – Save £0000’s on Legal Fees

The cost of using a solicitor can spiral, especially when agreement can’t be reached using written correspondence, which is often the process.  Your solicitor writes to your ex’s solicitor, they then need to take advice and reply, often with a counter-proposal, and so the process drags-on.  It is often usual for a law firm to request that you deposit hundred’s of pounds before they will begin the work.  Once started, the deposit you left, can get eaten away very quickly and it may not be long before you are asked to make another deposit.

Using mediation, you will know where you stand with fees.  The Family Mediation & Counselling Service will happily provide an estimate of costs for your case.  We offer fixed-fees for each of the services we provide (Click Here to see our Fees).  For our Clients who are on lower incomes and who do not qualify for Legal Aid, we offer a reduction of 25% from our standard fees (Click Here for more details).
