Family Mediation Services
Offices in Leeds & Harrogate

Dealing with relationship breakdown whether that involves sorting out arrangements for the care of your children or dealing with property and financial affairs can be an extremely difficult time. It can be overwhelming and hard to see the wood through the trees. Family mediation offers separated couples the opportunity to work together to resolve the practical and legal steps necessary to achieve a separation that is fair for the whole family. Where appropriate children can also be involved in the mediation process so their views can be heard.

At Consilia Mediation we have dedicated specialist family solicitor mediators committed to helping separated families in West and North Yorkshire.

The head of the mediation team Laura Clapton is a highly experienced and accredited family lawyer mediator “I am incredibly passionate about the process of family mediation as I have experienced through my role as a family mediator how empowering it can be for a separated family to take control of their future by working with each other to find solutions which benefit the family as a whole. As a mediator I facilitate that process by helping the parties to consider options and move towards a resolution.”

Our team of accredited solicitor mediators can help you and your former spouse or partner make decisions concerning arrangements for your children and issues involving property and finances. We have comfortable and centrally located offices in Leeds and Harrogate.
