Joint Family Mediation in Basildon


How Does Family Mediation Basildon work?

During the first joint mediation session, a mediator will offer a summary of the information (rules) contained in the MIAM, such as confidentiality, protection, respect, taking pauses, and so on. Before mediation Basildon can occur, you must sign an agreement to mediate in order for the process to continue. By signing, you acknowledge the mediation procedure, the information regarding confidentiality, data protection, charges, and how to file a complaint.

The mediator will next question every side if they have any questions before asking them to explain why they are at mediation. After each party has made a statement, the Mediator and parties will establish the agenda. The purpose of establishing the agenda is to guarantee that all parties are represented and that the things they believe should be covered are discussed, as well as to prioritise concerns and provide a strategy for each mediation session. From the agenda, you and your ex-partner will then, with the assistance of the mediator, discuss the agenda topics.

The family mediator will support the parties by developing ideas (with the parties’ permission), providing information pertinent to the case, challenging comments made by the parties, providing tried-and-true solutions, and facilitating the parties’ ability to establish durable agreements. If more than one session is necessary, subsequent meetings will differ in that the mediator will re-establish the rules and then ask if you have any questions before proceeding with the agenda.
