Miams Mediation Lincoln
Financial arrangements and mediationWhen it comes to financial arrangements after a divorce there are many things that you will have to consider. You will have to think about what you are going to do with the family home, for example. You may decide to sell the home and split the proceeds or allow one person to buy out the share in the home. There will also be decisions to be made concerning shares and other financial assets, such as pensions. This will have implications both now and in the future so you need to also consider how financial circumstances may change. For example, if the value of your shares was to depreciate. Mediation enables you to consider all of your financial arrangements and to sort out what should happen in a mutually agreed fashion. Whatever the complexities, and entanglements, in terms of your financial arrangements mediation is a comprehensive solution.

During a family break-up, any small detail can spiral into something bigger than could potentially damage either parties chances of getting access to children, money or proper. Family mediation is a great, cost-effective way to resolve problems without having to deal with lengthy court processes and pay high legal fees. The mediation will be a lot quicker than using solicitors so if you are able to manage the break-up process using mediation, this will cost a lot less money. During the meeting, you have the opportunity to be with your partner or in a separate room if the split is not amicable. If you choose a shuttle mediation, being in a different room to your partner, this will take longer. During the mediation process, a trained mediator will go through a number of things to try and help you resolve the split amicably. The mediator will be fully trained and may have to use different methods for each person, but there are a few things you can expect as standard for any mediation which are:
- Listening to both points of view
- Not taking individual sides
- Creating a calm atmosphereNegotiating to help you both reach agreement
- Suggestion of ways to go forward and reach an agreement
