Mediation is a process wherein parties who are in dispute come together with a neutral third party (the mediator) assisting them in achieving an agreement. The mediator acts as a facilitator, working with the individuals or parties to reach a mutually agreed resolution. Mediation is often used in family law matters and our mediators work with individuals or couples who are trying to resolve issues stemming from divorce, separation or family disputes.
Family mediation can be an effective way of resolving conflicts within the family. It is usually less stressful than going through litigation and it gives the parties involved more control over how the dispute will be resolved, as opposed to having a judge rule on the outcome. It also keeps matters private, whereas court proceedings are a matter of public record. Furthermore, mediation allows both sides to express their views without fear of being judged or criticised.
At John Barkers Solicitors we offer a range of mediation services to suit each individual situation. Our experienced family mediators can meet with couples or individuals at our Barnsley office, or we can arrange for home visits if preferred. We also provide telephone and Skype-based consultations for those who are unable to attend in person. During the session, our mediator will help you both talk through the issues and come up with an agreement that works best for all involved.
