financial mediation

Money is one of the main themes handled during mediation. Divorcing spouses commonly use mediation to reach a financial agreement prior to getting the divorce decision. Your lawyer would have advised you to attend mediation. Mediation results in a resolution or a mediation certificate that may be used to submit a court application.

Mediation is a great way to talk about money and plans. Many participants find that mediation helps them reach an agreement on how finances will be handled after their divorce. One of the most often asked questions in financial mediation is what cash and assets are covered and what is necessary. While your mediator will address this during your first meeting, it is helpful to be informed prior to your appointment. During the financial mediation process, both parties must fully disclose their financial matters.

What is Financial Dispute Resolution?

How does it function?

Financial Settlement Mediation may be customised to meet your unique goals, preferences, and availability. A mediation session can take place in a variety of ways, including the following:

  • Face-to-face sessions: Face-to-face meetings take place in the same Mediation room as the parties and are facilitated by a certified Mediator. In this case, the Mediator’s responsibility is to oversee your process impartially and to assist you in reaching an agreement that is acceptable to everyone.
  • Shuttle Meetings: We recognise that some parties are willing to participate in mediation but would prefer to do it separately. Individual parties will have their own distinct and private area during Shuttle Meetings. In this instance, the Mediator will circulate between the rooms, informing each side about the other’s position and ideas.
  • Remote Meetings: There are times when being in the same area at the same time is impossible, particularly owing to the Coronavirus outbreak, conducting remote Mediation sessions has enabled us to continue serving individuals in need. Remote mediation sessions may be acceptable in some circumstances and may be given to parties through Zoom, Skype, and¬†WhatsApp video calling. Remote Mediation can be conducted using ‘face to face’ or’shuttle’ communication.
