Children and Mediation
Effect of divorce on children
Divorce often has devastating experiences for children. From feeling responsible for the situation to not feeling safe and stable in their own homes, there are significant effects of a divorce on children. The biggest priority for any parent should be to make sure that the process of divorce and all of its effects become less painful for the children. We have extremely professional and well-trained mediators who will make the process of divorce for you and your children.
When a divorce case is being discussed in court, things can get pretty antagonistic. When issues such as the distribution of assets, custody of children and future of joint policies are discussed in court, things might get heated. Opting for mediation services will help make things much easier for both you and your ex. Not mention this will end up saving loads of time as well as money as you won’t have to make endless rounds of courts or pay extortionate rates to lawyers. We offer mediation services that help make the process of divorce easier for all parties involved. We also specialise in offering services specifically aimed at children.
We have mediators that are highly experienced in mediating separation and divorce cases. They are well versed in dealing with a wide variety of clients and have a special emphasis on resolving the problems being faced by children. As children are naïve and innocent and are not able to fully comprehend the why’s and how’s of a divorce, it’s essential that be protected from any unnecessary potential psychological conflict or/and distress. The education of children, their place of residence, the allocation of funds for their on-going expenses, custodial rights, all must be planned of well in advance so that children don’t suffer during the divorce proceedings. We make it a priority to ensure that your divorce proceedings don’t take a toll on children and they feel safe and loved and don’t feel neglected by any party.
Mediation offers a great solution for couples
It’s important that children feel safe in their own house. Even after a divorce, it is possible for children to feel safe and secured provided the process of divorce is carried out amicably. Our mediators ensure that all differences and disputes are adhered to in a peaceful and amicable manner. This directly affects children as well, as they feel safe and stable if disputes are dealt with peacefully. Also, through the mediation process children are made to understand that no one parent is a ‘hero’ or a ‘villain’. Though mediators are not therapists or counsellors, they are able to create a platform through which disputes can be dealt with amicably. This platform can also be used to reconsider the decision of divorce if some understanding is reached between both parties involved.
In short, our services are going to make sure this long and tedious decision of divorcing someone becomes a little bit easier. While divorcing someone will always be difficult, through mediation the process can be made shorter and less antagonistic. Our special emphasis on the problems faced by children will make it easier for your child to comprehend your divorce as well.
