As parents, it’s natural to have disagreements over parenting decisions and the upbringing of your children. However, these conflicts can often lead to communication breakdowns and potentially damaging outcomes for both parents and children. Fortunately, mediation offers a constructive and empowering way to work through these differences and improve communication between co-parents.
At Family Mediation Choice, our trained mediators provide a safe and non-judgmental space for parents to discuss their concerns and find mutually beneficial solutions. Our aim is to help parents establish a positive co-parenting relationship, reduce conflict and improve communication.
Preparing for mediation involves both parties agreeing to participate, choosing a mediator, and arranging a suitable location and time. During mediation, each parent will have the opportunity to share their perspective with the mediator’s guidance, and work together to reach a resolution that benefits the family as a whole
What is Mediation?
Mediation is a process of dispute resolution in which a neutral third-party facilitates communication between two or more parties to reach an agreement. This process is often used for family conflict, such as relationship breakdowns, and works best when both sides are willing to collaborate in a constructive way. Family Mediation Choice in Truro offers a safe and respectful environment to help families resolve their differences.
The benefits of mediation go beyond just resolving conflicts. Other advantages include:
- Confidentiality: Mediation sessions are private, which means that anything discussed during the session cannot be used in court.
- Cost-Effective: Mediation is generally less expensive than traditional litigation, both in terms of money and time.
- Faster Process: Typically, mediation sessions take less time to complete than traditional litigation.
- Preserves Relationships: Mediation preserves co-parenting relationships by helping parents communicate more effectively.
- Safe Space for Communication: Parents can communicate freely without fear of judgment or repercussion.
- Customizable Solutions: Mediation facilitates unique solutions based on the needs and desires of the parents.
