Mediation Services – Leeds
April 2014 saw substantial changes made to the legal system concerning separation and divorces. These changes are especially important when any separation or divorce involves children. The changes ensure that the welfare of the child is taken into account and to minimise the impact on them. One of the changes was that the parties involved should take part in a mediation session. This has to take place before any court action to do with financial or custody matters could go ahead.
Divorce or separation is a stressful time that can affect everyone involved, especially children. Any breakup can potentially lead to issues that need to be resolved such as contact and custody of children or financial matters for example. Working through the problems and solving them before they get bigger and become more of a problem is important. This is where mediation services can help in finding a way forward. It can help solve issues without the need to involve lawyers and the court. While our services are available throughout the country getting the help locally to work through issues and find a resolution locally is important. Being able to seek help close to where you live can help remove the need for spending time travelling or having to take time off work.
