Family Mediation

Sometimes in highly emotional family situations it can be extremely difficult to find clarity. Emotions run high and it can often be hard to see an alternative perspective from an outside view. This is where mediation can be invaluable. Mediation with an impartial third party working together with you through whatever issues you may be struggling with is an ideal first step to take before any big decisions are made regarding the future.

Although not compulsory, in most cases you will be expected to have at least explored the option of mediation before proceeding to having your case heard in court. However, in cases involving domestic violence or abuse mediation will not be considered appropriate.

Pengelly & Rylands Solicitors in Tenterden have a premier family mediator within our family law team.   With many years’ experience, Carole Webb is used to helping families make financial arrangements and resolve disputes about children, whether they arise in the context of divorce or civil partnership dissolution or following the breakdown of a relationship between an unmarried couple
