How does family mediation work?

27th November 2020

Family mediation can be a very effective method of resolving difficult family circumstances. Couples do separate, or get divorced, but this doesn’t necessarily have to be through the courts, family mediation is an alternative.

The process is usually done during face-to-face meetings but appointments can also be held via online video calls if it is not safe to meet in person.

In a survey conducted by the Family Mediation Council in 2019, it showed that family mediation is a highly successful way of helping couples resolve disputes, with a success rate in 70% of cases. You can find out more about the survey and results here.
