Mediation can be an excellent way of resolving issues directly between two parties.
With many years experience, Gearóidín Charlton is a trained mediator, with a specialised knowledge of the issues involved around mediation. This allows us to provide mediation services to assist in the resolution of matrimonial and relationship issues arising on separation. It is an alternative dispute resolution model, which allows couples to negotiate their parenting issues and finances outside the courtroom.
During the mediation process, the mediator is completely impartial, and both sides will need to take independent legal advice from another solicitor during the process. It is a private, confidential and voluntary process which involves a series of meetings between the couple and the mediator where, together, they endeavour to reach an agreement. If an agreement is reached it can then be made binding via a court order.
As is the case with collaborative family law, mediation can be a transformative and very cost-effective process.
