Co-parenting through Coronavirus

Never has a period of time brought forth such use of the word “unprecedented”.  The use is of course justified as these are times for which there simply is no road map or blueprint.  Lockdown is a situation that was only put in place previously during airstrikes during World War II.  Even then the situation was not entirely the same.  I have already written guidance for those self-isolating in a house with a partner they’re separating from.  I now want…

Thinking about mediation?

I was asked a question the other day about family mediation and it occurred to me that I wasn’t sure there was a blog post with the information in.  I’m quite sure there is a wealth of information on this topic across the blog but I felt it might be helpful to have it in one place.  The question focused on two things: Do you have to be on the same page to try family mediation; and What do you…

Are you thinking of becoming a mediator?

Recent years have seen a steady increase in the number of couples entering mediation.  This is due in part to changes in the law, but also a greater awareness amongst members of the public about what mediation is.  They find the idea of being in control of their own resolution appealing.  They are also attracted by how quickly the process can work, and the cost savings that can be made.  Lawyers too have seen the benefits of supporting clients in…
