Who we help

Couples

You might be thinking about separating or getting divorced, or you may have already done this. Your situation may be tense and communication between you difficult.

Parents

Parents are encouraged to consider all the implications of the arrangements they propose to make for the children. 

Other family members

We can help step parents, step brothers and sisters, grandparents and others in an existing or new family resolve differences and communicate more effectively, helping to rebuild and strengthen relationships which have broken down for what might be many different reasons.

Children and young people

Young people may want to mediate directly with a parent, step parent or another family member and this can be facilitated through FMJ.

Couples

You might be thinking about separating or getting divorced, or you may have already done this. Your situation may be tense and communication between you difficult.

As such, you might find yourselves struggling to make important decisions about the future. This is where FMJ might be useful.

We can help make arrangements for any jointly owned and shared properties, finances, other assets, or debts and we can work with you to consider how you’ll sort and divide these to enable you to both be able to move forward independently.

Our mediators are neutral and independent professionals who will help you to find solutions that work for both of you as best they can according to your situation and requirements.

You don’t need to see a lawyer while involved in mediation but as agreements made with us aren’t legally binding, we advise all clients to seek legal advice along the way if necessary and before finalising agreements, particularly regarding finances.

Parents

Whether you are separated, or divorced, you will still need to co-parent for the rest of your children’s lives.

It’s important that decisions about future parenting are made by the parents as they are the ones who know their children best. However, discussing certain issues can be difficult to do alone, particularly when emotions might be running high.

As such, mediation can help you make arrangements regarding child contact and rotas, holidays, parenting rules and boundaries, schooling and child maintenance, for example.

Parents are encouraged to consider all the implications of the arrangements they propose to make for the children. Our mediators are neutral and independent professionals who will help you to find solutions that work for all of you as best they can according to your situation and requirements.

You don’t need to see a lawyer while involved in mediation but as agreements made with us aren’t legally binding, we advise all clients to seek legal advice along the way if necessary and before finalising agreements, particularly regarding finances.

Children and young people

Young people may want to mediate directly with a parent, step parent or another family member and this can be facilitated through FMJ.

As with other mediation, we’ll see both parties separately initially and if suitable for mediation, joint sessions will be arranged to discuss matters further. We may mediate with both people in the same room or in separate rooms if more appropriate.

We also offer direct consultation with children in order that their voice is heard during parents’ mediation sessions which is sometimes helpful when making decisions. Click here to find out more.

Other family members

Family disputes can arise at times which inevitably cause a great deal of stress for everyone involved. Some of the issues that families may disagree over could include relationships and communication, visitation rights, family businesses, estranged family members or property and inheritance.

We can help step parents and siblings, grandparents, carers or others in an existing or a new family to resolve differences and communicate more effectively. Hopefully this may help to rebuild and strengthen relationships which have broken down for many reasons.

Whatever the issues, we can help those involved look at different options and find a way forward.
