Making sure you have the best financial deal possible.


Splitting up means changes to your living arrangements and the money you each have.  This can be a tense time with much uncertainty about how you will manage. This often results in arguments causing resentment and even more stress. Will I be able
to manage financially?

Mediators can help reduce worry about money and the future.

There are a lot of things to think about and one thing depends on another making decisions difficult. It is easy to get overwhelmed, and if you have children there is yet another dimension to the finances.

Mediation can help you deal with finances, property, and living arrangements directly and quickly compared with getting the court to settle matters.

Typically, mediation takes between two and five meetings to sort things out and help you feel more confident about your financial future. The mediator will give you an estimate of what is needed when you have explained your circumstances during your initial meeting.
