Mediation. What is it?

People often arrive at mediation when they are separating or getting divorced. When such dramatic life events occur, there are usually numerous issues to discuss and work out. Often the events leading up to a separation make it tricky for two people to sit down and work out their own arrangements. Emotions are high and some level of conflict may have occurred.

Mediation and Children

Working out arrangements for children is one of the reasons why people choose mediation. When parents separate, the decisions with respect to where the children will live, how they will spend time with both parents and all of the many other associated issues are often very tricky to manage. It is usually a time where both parents are experiencing some very strong feelings and emotions - including those of loss, sadness, anger, hurt and guilt. Having an experienced family mediator to help them not only articulate how they are feeling but enable them to feel heard and acknowledged can be the first step in working out their child-related issues.
