Welcome to Wessex Family Mediation

Family MediationFamily Mediation is a service that helps couples or other family members deal with any or all of the questions relating to their separation or divorce in a thoughtful and co-operative way. The mediator is an impartial third party who helps the parties involved work through any or all of the issues relating to the separation or divorce.

The issues may relate to children, property, finance or any other issues which are important to the parties involved.

The mediator will help the parties make their own informed decisions in a non-adversarial way; as well as helping them to consider the needs and feelings of their children. The mediation room is less formal than the court room.

The Legal Aid Agency will cover the cost of the assessment meeting and the first mediation session providing that one of the parties qualifies for legal aid.
