Disputes involving children
With the help of the mediation process, you will be able to reach to a comfortable and best possible decision on your own and no judge will be required for that. This fact implies that the agreements which are made by mediation are better ones and last longer than the one which are decided by courts and involves a lot of legal proceeding and frustration.
IN a family mediation process many joint meetings are to be attended by the concerned parties and a mediator is involved who tries to solve the agreements in a peaceful manner and helps in reaching to an agreement. This provides a very safe surroundings and a very fair opportunity to both the parties and thus a best possible agreement can be reached peacefully. The mediator is there to help both the sides to negotiate and reach to a result or conclusion that will satisfy the needs of all the members who are involved.
Mediation is providing a better way to communicate and also the quality of communication is enhanced in between the members like if the case is about you and your ex-partner. Mediation can be used in any case like which involves the division of property, or related to child custody, etc. You can go for mediation if you think that on your own you will end up in arguments and fights and will never reach to any conclusion in a peaceful manner.
You may bring your children with you, so that they can also meet the mediator and thus a confidential discussion can be done in the presence of all. But the mediator will only talk about the agreements with the parents and all the feedback will be given to them only. The children are to be asked if they want feedbacks or not. In this manner children can share their feelings and emotions and can give their views freely. The children are allowed to ask any type of questions and can tell them how they actually feel about the present situation, they can also share their concerns and worries regarding the issue. This procedure is generally very painful for the children and they like the opportunity to share their feelings, this way parents will come to know about the sufferings of their children and they will surely go for a peaceful agreement. Also, parents will know what are the needs and requirements of their children.
So, if you are also going through any family dispute, then mediation is the first thing you should go for.
