The most important agreements that you need to think about are those that involve your kids. They have the right to live in an environment where they are taken care of without any friction between their parents because having to deal with their parent’s issues can be seriously detrimental to the mental state of a child. This is something people usually forget while being hostile toward one another in coming to a legal separation agreement. When you use legal mediation services you are sure to do the best thing for all parties concerned. The two parties will not be expected to sit in a waiting room together which eliminates awkward situations. You are met by the mediator as soon as you arrive.
If you cannot stand being in the same room as your soon to be ex you may opt for shuttle mediation but this will end up costing more and makes the process much harder than it needs to be. The mediator is trained to deal with the resolution of your disputes and is completely focused on helping the both of you reach an agreement. You will never need to deal with things that happened in the past as this process is aimed at finding a way forward instead of focusing on the past. Everything discussed during mediation is treated as confidential. When you go the way of legal separation London will not cry for your failed marriage and for this reason you are better off doing the same. If your separation is mediated it goes a long way in helping you get over your loss because, let’s face it, getting a divorce is not always mutually wanted.
Mediators do not give legal advice to either party and at Surrey Mediation Service they aren’t marriage counselors either although they are willing to mediate any family dispute that you may be faced with. Mediation can unfortunately only be of help if both parties agree to be a part of it to the end.
