How mediation lawyers can help
Mediation lawyers are trained to act impartially and do not seek to apportion blame. Mediation is not marriage guidance nor couple counselling.
Mediation can provide real benefits in appropriate cases. It reduces tension and hostility and helps couples make their own informed decisions about their futures. Mediation plays an important role in assisting families to address and resolve the issues which arise from separation and divorce.
Parties are free to take legal advice at the same time as the mediation process, although their legal advisers do not attend the mediation sessions with them.
Our mediation lawyers
There are two trained mediators in our team Kirstie Law and Desmond O'Donnoll. They will be happy to assist you to hopefully reach agreement with regard to children and/or financial issues. As mediators they will be impartial and will give you both information about the law jointly so that you can make informed decisions.
If you have reached a financial agreement with a mediator at another firm and want this converted into a binding order within the divorce proceedings (which is advisable) any of our family lawyers can draft the necessary paperwork to convert your agreement into a legally binding document.
