We support parents and children through family change and disruption as a result of separation, divorce or family restructuring. Family mediation sessions take place in our Dumfries office.
The aim of mediation is to agree on practical, workable arrangements for the future, taking into account children’s views, needs and feelings. Our focus is on putting children’s needs first. We do not help parents get back together.
Although mediation is primarily for parents whose relationship is over, it’s for all sorts of families – married and unmarried, younger and older, with or without children.
We have practical advice and literature available on how mediation helps and what happens at a mediation session.
How much does it cost?
Mediation – The registration fee is £25 then £43 per person per session thereafter.
Intergenerational Mediation – Where one person is under 18 the fee is a £25 registration fee then contributions are requested thereafter. Where people are over 18 the fee is a £25 registration fee and then £25 per person per session thereafter.
Clients may be entitled to legal aid to pay the fees. Application for this has to be made through a solicitor. If there is no entitlement to legal aid and the costs are too prohibitive then we can discuss reduced fees.
