Family Mediation Solicitor Glasgow
Resolving disputes can be a difficult process, with different parties attempting to advance a particular point of view. This is particularly prevalent in family disputes, which often concern highly emotive issues such as divorce or the care of children. In light of this fact, it is important that whatever forum you attempt to resolve your dispute in, there should be some margin for negotiation and discussion.
At Family Law Glasgow, we understand the importance of using a process that helps to address disputes quickly and effectively. This is where family mediation can be very useful.
What is Family Mediation?
Family Mediations is a dispute resolution process. However, it is different from traditional court based litigation in a number of ways:
- There is no judge to decide how a dispute should be resolved. Instead, you and the person that you have a dispute with will agree to appoint a mediator. The mediator is charged with facilitating discussion between you both, and helping you to achieve certain outcomes, i.e. settling your dispute. Furthermore, a mediator will not direct discussions. They will take a less involved role, helping to keep discussions going so that a resolution can be found that is to both parties’ satisfaction.
- You have complete control over the mediation process: you decide how long it will last, and when and if you want to stop using mediation.
- Mediation of any kind is not as rigid as court-based litigation. There are no strict rules of procedure or evidence, which can make it difficult to have meaningful discussions on less tangible matters. It is designed to be flexible and can be adapted to the particular needs of your situation. By extension, owing to the lack of procedure, mediation does not suffer the same costs as court based argument.
