Making Those Important Financial Decisions
Consilia Mediation can assist you and your spouse/former partner to make important decisions about your financial future. If you have financial issues to resolve following the breakdown of your relationship, mediation can help you to reach a resolution cost effectively and much more quickly than via the Court process which is financially and emotionally draining and often long drawn out.
The exchange of financial disclosure takes place at the outset of the process and then we help you to explore options in order to assist you to reach a fair and practical financial settlement. Discussions which take place in family mediation are confidential, in legal terms “Without Prejudice” however all financial disclosure exchanged is open which means that you can show the documentation to your solicitors and seek legal advice in between the mediation sessions.
At Consilia Mediation our family mediators are accredited and experienced lawyers with a lot of experience of the Court process and the financial aspects of family law. As such we can help guide you to reach a settlement within the band of reasonableness which is vitally important if you are seeking that the Court embody the terms of any agreement reached within the mediation setting, via your solicitors/legal advisers.
We also offer mediation services to assist with discussing provisions of pre and post marital/civil partnership documents. In our experience parties often prefer the more discursive forum of mediation than traditional solicitor based methods
