Families face a variety of challenges, and disagreements can arise over issues such as divorce, child custody, and inheritance. When these disputes become entrenched, it can be difficult for families to move forward. Fortunately, family mediation services can help families resolve their differences and find a path forward. In this article, we will discuss how mediation can assist families in Littlehampton, and how AM Mediators can help.
What is Family Mediation?
Family mediation is a process by which a neutral third party helps families resolve disputes and improve communication. The mediator’s role is to facilitate negotiation between the parties, and to help them reach a mutually acceptable solution.
Advantages of Family Mediation
Confidential: Mediation sessions are confidential and conducted in private, which can help parties feel more comfortable discussing sensitive issues.
Less Expensive: Mediation is typically less expensive than going to court, which can be a significant advantage for families who may not have the financial resources to hire an attorney.
Less Stressful: Mediation is generally less stressful than going to court, which can be a traumatic experience for families.
More Control: Mediation allows parties to have more control over the outcome of their case, rather than leaving the decision in the hands of a judge.
