Family Mediation Week

Family Mediation Week

Family Mediation Week 16-20 January is an opportunity for separating couples to explore the benefits of mediation for resolving issues around finances and arrangements for children.

January usually sees a dramatic rise in the number of parents deciding to live apart as the various pressures that go hand-in-hand with the Christmas period often act as a final straw for relationships.

At such a challenging time, many people are left not knowing which way to turn. Their life-changing decision to separate brings with it so many tough questions.

These can include:

  • Who lives where?
  • Where will the children live, and how will we make sure we each spend time with them?
  • How will we sort money?
  • What about debts and pensions?
  • And even the family dog?

Family Mediation Week shines a helpful spotlight on these tricky issues, offering separating couples information about their options as they look to make arrangements for parenting, property and finance. It is a process where an independent, professionally trained mediator helps couple to work these things out, enabling them to avoid the cost, stress and time delays involved in courtroom confrontation.

At Tisshaws, both Richard and Hana are trained family mediators, able to help couples to create long-term solutions for their specific circumstances, rather than leaving it to a court to make those decisions. If you are thinking about divorce and separation, we offer an initial no obligation one-hour appointment for just £50 (incl. VAT), so you can discover the options and issues pertaining to your specific circumstances. To book a consultation please call us on 01444 472700 or email us on
