Can mediation help when my marriage fails?

The failure of a marriage can be attributed to many factors, such as the influence of previous relationships that we have experienced, the relationship of our parents, our own self-worth and the capacity to change.

Most couples want to put the past behind them and have the divorce or separation dealt with as quickly as possible.

However, the concept of a quickie divorce owes more to myth than reality. Once you bring children and finances into the process, any divorce and separation can become complicated and expensive – especially if your divorce becomes uncontrollable.

Mediation can help speed up the process and allow you to talk through your differences in confidence with an independent neutral professional.

What are the benefits of mediation? 

As parents, you have a responsibility to protect your children as much as possible from the damaging effect of your divorce. Mediation sets a good foundation for building an amicable relationship for the future.
