Mediation – the best option for children

Children can be spared the trauma of stressful court battles if their parents use mediation, claims Family Justice Minister Lord McNally (as reported by Family Lore Focus).

The Minister said:
“Mediation works and is the best option for children. We are committed to ensuring more people resolve disputes themselves, rather than go through the confrontational and stressful experience of going to court.
When people separate we want them to do it in the least damaging way for everyone involved, especially children. That is why we want them to use the excellent services available to agree a way forward, rather than have one forced upon them by the courts.”

We agree that avoiding the court system is in almost all cases the best option - whether you have children or not. From the different non-court alternatives available, of course we think that the best way to resolve your financial disputes is to use Intelligent Divorce!
