New Horizon Family Mediation Salisbury Dorset Wiltshire Hampshire

Does any of this sound familiar...

"I have never felt so scared and sad in my life"
"I've been wondering what to do"
"One morning everything was going according to plan; by the end of the day your entire future is so murky a crystal ball couldn't even see it"
"I was incredibly terrified to break it off"
"How do I move on?"
"We both genuinely care about our sons well being. Where we differ is the idea of division of assets and child support"

What is Family Mediation Salisbury?

Helping you to resolve financial matters
Helping you to resolve matters concerning your children
Helping grandparents arrange to see their children
Helping discussions to agree the detail in pre-nuptial and post-nuptial agreements
Helping the children have a voice through a child inclusive mediator

Firstly, what Family Mediation Salisbury isn't: Family Mediation Salisbury is not a form of marriage counselling.

Family Mediation Salisbury is non-confrontational in nature. It encourages people to focus on the future and problem-solving strategies rather than the problems of the past. The process is also "child-centred" whereby people are encouraged to make special provision for the needs of children.

Benefits of Family Mediation Salisbury...

New Horizon Family Mediation Salisbury Dorset Wiltshire Hampshire
Better Outcomes
You are able to discuss bespoke agreements that suit you, your partner and children! If matters proceed to court, you may have to accept an agreement that the court chooses, and this may not suit either of you. You get to decide what provisions are made and how matters will be resolved!
Save Time
A court application with a Family Lawyer can easily take a year when matters are resolved through the courts. The courts are currently overwhelmed with family law cases and this is causing significant delays.
Reduce Stress
You will both have control of how matters are progressed and managed. While concerns remain unresolved, this causes undue stress as you often cannot anticipate an outcome and are anxious about the future.
Remember the Mediator remains impartial they are not there to judge you they are assisting you.
Save Money
Typically, if you issue a court application your legal costs could easily be between £8,000 to £25,000 each and, if matters proceed to a contested final hearing your legal costs are likely to be much more. Costs that will only deplete the family purse. Family Mediation Salisbury is a great option if you want to save money on the divorce process.
Access to other professionals

You will be given access to the following additional professionals during the mediation process in the event you require the additional services:

  • Family lawyers
  • Financial Advisers
  • Pension Actuaries
  • Child Inclusive Mediators
  • Accountants
Funding Options
Will will assess you to find out if you qualify for any legal funding to help pay for your mediation.

The Ministry of Justice has provided funding under the Mediation Voucher Scheme. This Voucher is not means tested and is available to all couples who require assistance in mediation for financial and childrens matters. The Voucher can be utilised towards joint mediation appointments and has a value of £500. 

We can facilitate some legal aid work if you are eligible for this funding
