In light of the recent Oprah interview, Meghan and Harry may benefit significantly from family mediation as the recent news has certainly caused tension within the royal family. Below are a few of the benefits of family mediation that may help out Meghan and Harry in this tough time.
A Good Level of Flexibility
One of the biggest benefits of family mediation is the flexibility, accessibility and convenience of the process. Meghan and Harry would have everything organised at a time and place of convenience to them and can progress at the preferred speed of both of them. Whilst also bringing things to a conclusion as quickly as possible, or take their time to ensure each and every issue with the Royal Family has been fully addressed.
Flexibility also extends to the decisions reached and the overall outcome of family mediation. All decisions can be tailored to suit the preferences and priorities of Meghan and Harry, rather than allowing the courts to impose decisions that they have no direct control over.
The role of the mediator isn’t to offer solutions or tell participants what to do. In the case of Meghan and Harry, it is simply to facilitate and encourage open communication with the rest of the Royal Family. In turn, this allows Harry and Meghan to reach their own conclusions and make their own decisions about the next steps forward. The mediator may offer independent expert legal advice when required or prompted, but it is up to the couple and the Royal Family part to resolve the issue through communication.
With Harry recently stating that he’s having to now live off the money that his mother Princess Diana left for him, the financial cost, believe it or not, is important. Fortunately, the mediation we offer at FMACS is very cost-effective and affordable! Family mediation has the potential to be an exponentially more cost-effective approach to dispute resolution than court proceedings. This depends entirely on how many sessions that Harry and Meghan think are needed and the nature and complexity of the dispute with the Royal Family, but mediation is almost always a fast and affordable approach to resolving all disputes no matter what scale of the hierarchy.
This would be the most important part when it comes to family mediation with Harry and Meghan as they are part of one of the biggest families on the planet! There’s much to be said for the privacy and discretion of professional family mediation, especially at FMACS. Harry and Meghan would obviously prefer to keep their disputes and issues as private as possible, it makes sense to avoid court involvement, especially in this scenario! Family mediation would guarantee total privacy and discretion for the Royal Family’s dispute, as all sessions are carried out behind closed doors in the strictest confidence.
