While the importance of a family cannot be stressed enough, there are plenty of times when the family undergoes some sort of problem and experiences difficulty in maintaining its structure. Some of the most common family problems are separation between the husband and the wife, frequent quarrels and the inability of both the spouses to speak to one another or using a civil way in order to speak out and solve their problems.
It is quite surprising to know that a lot of times, a majority of the problems of human beings can be solved simply by talking it out or exchanging a proper communication. However, sometimes it may so happen that a spouse is willing to talk it out but the other one is reluctant. Therefore, in such situations it is beneficial to have a family mediator. The mediator would make it possible for the husband and wife to sit together in the same room and engage in a meaningful conversation in order to sort out the problems that they are currently going through.
Another benefit of family mediation services is that these services are comprehensive and they can be used for the purpose of tackling different types of issues at a time. Family mediation services are a means of helping both the parties reach conclusions or agreements by taking into account the interests, concerns and requirements of all the parties. This kind of service offers the golden opportunity of recognizing the needs of the children or of the couple as a family.
One of the worst setbacks that an effective solution can have is the disbelief of the people about its effectiveness. This is exactly the case with family mediation services. People in the UK are unsure about going for this kind of solution because they do not understand the process of family mediation properly and assume that these are free and worthless services.
This notion is born in the minds of the people partly because of the numerous UK charities that offer free family mediation services. The truth is that these free services are substandard in nature and they aren’t effective enough to enable the birth of a solution, therefore they don’t even hold a candle to effective family mediation services from experts like us!

Mediation is a neutral place for separating or divorcing parents to discuss the obstacles which still hold them together. Most commonly these are children, money and property. Mediation is not a relationship counselling service, but a way for former partners to amicably divide their assets and children’s access without needing to involve the time and expense of courts and judges who may not fully understand the situation.
The system is self-referred. To discuss your mediation needs just call us. We offer pre-mediation advice for just the price of the phone call which will help you decide if mediation is suitable for you.
No, a mediator is completely neutral. You are encouraged to seek legal advice through a solicitor in conjunction with your mediation sessions to ensure the terms you have reached are suitable for your requirements.
An agreement reached through mediation is not legally binding. It relies on both parties standing by the agreed terms. This does not affect your legal rights. If you prefer, the mediation agreement can be taken to a solicitor to be drawn up as a legal document. Alternatively, the case can be put before the judge if mediation does not work for you.
The entire process of family mediation can be broken down into small steps in order to help one understand the process better:
Step 1: The parties need to accept the fact that they have a problem and approach Free Family Mediation Service.
Step 2: We would then fix an appointment with the applicant.
Step 3: During the appointment, the mediation agenda is prepared and the sessions are tailored around your needs and the issues that you’d like to discuss with the other party or individual.
Step 4: If there is more than one issue, then the issues are classified as per their priorities and more pressing issues are tackled and resolved first.
Step 5: The Free Family Mediation sessions take place and these provide individuals in dispute with each other a great platform to talk it out and clarify the issues so that future misunderstandings can be avoided.
Step 6: Once the common ground is arrived upon by all the parties involved owing to the mediator then the parties are explained about the options that they can choose from.
Step 7: Once all the parties settle upon a solution, it is secured through mutually acceptable proposals.
Step 8: The proposals are then signed by both or all the parties and documented.
And this is how the Free Family Mediation service works, in just eight simple steps the solution is reached and the dispute is settled! Therefore this is the reason why our services are effective for tackling family issues and quarrels.
