Research shows that mediation can cost a quarter of the price and take a quarter of the time of going to court.
Mediation therefore will always be considerably less expensive than litigation and it will always take less time for a successful outcome to be achieved.
All parties have the opportunity to engage in constructive discussion at an early stage before legal costs can escalate to a point where in some cases neither party can afford to continue and the matter remains unresolved.
Whether you cannot agree on arrangements for your children after separation or financial arrangements mediation is less disruptive, faster and far less expensive than taking the matter to court.
You can also remain in control of what will happen to your children rather than have your child’s arrangements decided by a judge. Mediation offers clarity and the assistance of the mediator who has been legally trained.
