Can anyone help me pls? I have been going thru the stages of divorce for over a year now, stuck on the financial statement. I went to a family mediation
meeting without my ex-partner and things have got no-where. I changed solicitor as the previous gave me contradicting info constantly and wanted to charge £3000 to finalise the divorce as I was initially on legal help. Now my new solicitor has received the messy divorce file and advised I need to attend family mediation
. I have not received my ex Form E's as of yet, nothing has been agreed from child maintenance
, matrimonial house, etc. What is the purpose of attending Family Mediation, is this necessary and what will this resolve?
Mediation is a means by which both parties can attend a meeting and try and agree on practical/financial issues surrounding the divorce/seperation. It is not exactly productive unless you both agree to participate though.
Where Mediation is successful this can save both sides stress and save alot of hassle and money.
