These discussions are never easy on either party, with financial, parental, and legal arrangements that need to be discussed openly and negotiated between parties that are often not seeing eye to eye.
The difficult and complex negotiation process can be burdensome on separating parties – which is why an objective third-party that is trained to facilitate effective mediations are often seen positively by all involved.

The process works. Over 85% of mediations ending with some form of agreed settlement.
