Capitol Mediation - Disputes 4 families
Children and financial mediation
In life, a lot of things go wrong and sometimes relationships break down. When spouses cannot solve their differences, they may decide to head to divorce court. This step is, however, not the best at all times. Family mediation is one option that such couples should consider before involving other parties.
Disputes between families can affect a lot of people. Families have always been the foundation of great societies. When two spouses decide to separate, it triggers a chain reaction in the family structure. Children are some of the first casualties of such situations. A lot of negative feelings may arise and affect children well into adulthood.

My Solicitor is saying i need try mediation first
In England, there is a law that requires individuals seeking rulings on issues involving financial matters or children to first attend mediation information and assessment meetings (MIAM).
When two people decide that they want to disentangle their lives from one another, then a counselor or the court may decide that they should get mediation services first.
There are exceptions to this rule, though, such as in cases of domestic violence.
Mediation is an excellent opportunity for individuals to raise issues that they may otherwise not highlight in a court of law. There are a lot of reasons for family breakdowns, and we believe that it is crucial to understand the causes of disputes to allow us to provide lapsing solutions. The aim of our mediation services is to give individuals a platform to express themselves. Some parents forget that their children may want their opinions heard. During mediation, we make that possible. It is why we insist on having individual meetings as well as group meetings.
The key to any dispute resolution is effective communication. Some spouses decide to divorce without even talking to each other about what went wrong. At Capitol Family Mediation we are big on quality communication. We encourage family members to talk to one another. You may find out there is a chance to salvage some relationships just by communicating. When a case involves children, parents have to understand that they will always have something that binds them. Keeping the doors of communication open ensures that children don’t have to suffer through the bad blood between parents.
One of the most sensitive issues when dealing with divorce is child custody. If parents can’t come to an agreement about how they will raise their children, then family mediation services will come in handy. Fighting over who gets custody can take a toll on children, and that is something we like to avoid at Capitol Family mediation.
What we Do
With our mediation services, families get faster solutions to their problems. In cases where lawyers and courts get involved, the process may take a long time and relationships may continue to fall apart. Our primary role is to ensure that families address their problems in the fastest ways possible.
We don’t dwell in the past, and that is one of the ways we encourage progress. For families to move forward, it helps to look into the future. Assigning blame will not do much to remedy situations. Our mediators concentrate on reaching the best solutions for all parties.
With Capitol Family Mediation, you have all the control. We strive to make the process very comfortable. You can tell us when you want to start the meetings and make the call when you want to stop. We give you control over what happens and how you wish to go about the mediation. The role of our mediators is to guide you through the process and help resolve the issues in your relationship. A point to remember is that mediators cannot help with the emotional distress that family members may be suffering. All they can do is facilitate dispute resolution and provide guidance.
