The idea of this week long national awareness campaign is to highlight the benefits of alternatives to court for separating and divorcing couples.
Divorce and separation affect almost everybody. Most people know somebody close to them who has been divorced or separated. Large numbers of people who separate or divorce go straight to a solicitor or a court, not necessarily appreciating the value of mediation as a way of helping them resolve their dispute.
The aim of mediation is for a couple to resolve their differences in a non-confrontational manner, to help them reach an agreement and, particularly when they have children, find a way of being able to communicate as parents into the future despite no longer being together as a couple.
At Progressive Mediation we have been supporting couples whilst they resolve their family disputes through mediation for many years and welcome this national campaign as a way to further highlight the benefits of mediation.
We will be available all week on the telephone to talk to you about how mediation could work for you or alternatively you can arrange to come to see us for an initial free assessment meeting. Call us on 0788 903 9393 or 0117 924 3880.
