Mediation provides an alternative to litigation in the courts to resolve family disputes and/or make arrangements about children, finances and other personal matters after separation or divorce.

It is intended to reduce the time, cost and stress involved, by helping families to reach long-lasting agreements in the best interests of all involved. The Government is increasingly supportive of this form of dispute resolution and therefore matrimonial lawyers need to be aware of how they can integrate mediation with their existing legal skills.

Family Mediation 2nd ed is an authoritative and practical guide which clearly explains the mediation process, taking the reader through each stage, explaining how to interact with other professionals and providing invaluable advice on the role of the mediator in particular situations.
