Bright Mediation UK

Family Mediation is a way of sorting differences between you and your ex-partner, with the help of a third person who won’t take sides. This third person is called a family mediator. They can help you reach an agreement about issues with children, money, property and/or communication.

At Bright Mediation we can provide the practical help, information and compassion that you may need at this difficult time.

Accredited by the Family Mediation Council in all issues, we are trained to work with people whose relationships have broken down to find solutions that both parties can agree on.

What is family mediation?

Family mediation works by helping you to find practical solutions that feel fair.
  • Mediation typically takes place over 2-4 sessions, depending on your circumstances. During the discussions, you and your former partner will be asked to explore all of the options available to resolve the issues you have.
  • Mediation is not a substitute for legal advice and you are encouraged to take independent legal advice on any proposals reached in mediation.
  • Mediation is a confidential process enabling you to feel free to discuss and explore all options. You can be safe in the knowledge that (unless you or another is at risk of harm) any discussions cannot be disclosed in court which could prejudice your case.
  • Family mediators have a duty to ensure the safety of all concerned and will offer shuttle mediation if either party is uncomfortable with being in the same room together.

What are the benefits of family mediation?

  • It gives you more say about what happens. In court, a judge will make the decisions. With mediation, only you and your former partner make decisions.
  • It is less stressful.
  • If you have children, we can help you discuss issues so that you can parent together in the future.
  • It can help find ways for everyone involved to get on better and to continue with important family relationships.
  • It can improve communication between you and your ex-partner.
  • It is quicker AND cheaper – helping you to get on with the rest of your life as quickly as possible.
