Splitting up with your partner is a very stressful time. Not only do you have to cope with the pain and upset of separating but, suddenly, you are faced with lots of uncertainty about the future:
- Who will look after the children?
- When will I get to see them?
- What will happen to the family home?
- What will I live on?
Even after all these things are worked out, changes in your life later on may mean that you need to think about them all over again – as the children get older, perhaps, or if you meet someone new.
And it isn’t just you and your ex who are affected by a separation; it can cause problems for other family members too, particularly the kids.
And don’t forget grandparents, new partners and their families.
But family mediation doesn't only help people who are splitting up: problems in families can sometimes become difficult to resolve. An independent and impartial third party can help the family, or those in dispute within it, settle these conflicts before they cause lasting problems.
No matter what stage of separation you are at, or what the issues are within the family, it’s worth thinking about whether family mediation might be able to help you and other family members to come to an agreement about how you will deal with life from now on.
