Relate MTB is hosting specialised support negotiating practical, financial and child care arrangements for couples who are separating. Hourly sessions are available from April.
Family Mediator Lesa Hall, says: “Separating is such a difficult, vulnerable and emotional time for couples, whether or not children are involved. Skilled and empathetic mediation can help couples to keep communicating effectively over child care arrangements, financial concerns and the separating of assets in the same way that Relate MTB relationship counselling provides emotional pathways.”
Family mediation is required as a first step before applying to the courts to resolve issues around divorce and separation and can cover child care arrangements, financial concerns and the separating of assets. Although there is a fee for each session, professional mediation can be a cost effective way of resolving a dispute when weighed up against a long, drawn out legal battle.
Adding the new service means that local couples, families and individuals can access all services in one local, convenient place.
Lesa adds: “I hope that the mediation service in Aylesbury and High Wycombe becomes a first call for people who are separating. It can also be used by people who have been in dispute for some time and feel they are at a standstill. We look after our clients and take them through this journey, working towards a resolution is our primary goal.”
