Family Mediation Week 2024

January 24, 2024

This week is Family Mediation Week which we are proud to be supporting. The purpose of the week is to raise the profile of mediation and highlight the benefits it can present to separating families and couples in resolving issues arising from their separation.

Family Mediation Week is hosted by the Family Mediation Council and takes place in January each year.  This year it takes place from 22 – 26 January 2024.

The Family Mediation Council have an action-packed schedule of webinars this week for a whole host of professionals. The aim of these webinars is to provide information about family mediation and other resources available to support families when they separate, so that those professionals can signpost families to relevant services. A full timetable of the events can be found here.

We are fortunate to have 5 trained mediators here at bbl who have a high success rate of helping couples to agree arrangements for their children and financial matters.

Family mediation provides a flexible process where you can set the agenda and discuss the issues that are important to you arising from your separation. The life-changing decision to separate brings with it a whole host of other questions. Topics that you may want to discuss at mediation may include:

  1. How should we sort our money and finances?
  2. Who is going to live where?
  3. What about debts and pensions?
  4. Are we going to sell the house?
  5. Where will the children live and what time will they spend with each of us?
  6. Who will care for the family pet?

All of this can be discussed at mediation.
