How to access relationship mediation

The end of a marriage or long-term relationship can be tough. But mediation helps you talk to your ex-partner so that you can make important decisions about your finances, your home and your children.  

Mediation offers a non-judgemental environment that gives you space and time to think about what’s important to you both. And if you have children, mediation can help you sort out the child access, maintenance and living arrangements that work for your whole family.

If you have children, mediation can help you sort out child access, maintenance and living arrangements that work for your whole family.
