Mediation is a way of resolving issues between partners without the cost and stress of court proceedings. Both partners meet with a mediator who helps them to resolve matters which need to be discussed between them by overseeing any relevant financial disclosure and helping the partners to focus on the options that are available until these are narrowed down to what is best for their circumstances. It is a voluntary process which only works where both partners are willing to mediate. The benefit of mediation is that it helps partners to find their own solutions, which work for them and it therefore helps both parents to maintain a good relationship with their children and mutual respect for each other for a working relationship in the future. Jacky Lewis is a mediator and offers mediation services.
