Does Family Mediation Work?
It is generally recognised that not all family disputes are suitable for mediation, especially when there are ongoing safety concerns for any of the participants or where one party is not willing to engage in the process, but from our experience the majority of family disputes are appropriate for mediation.
Once mediation begins, our experience shows that the vast majority of disputes are satisfactorily resolved, with both parties feeling that a suitable agreement has been reached. In the few cases that do not result in a satisfactory agreement being reached, the reasons for this vary including: mediation breaking down or being ended by one of the participants; the parties deciding to reconcile; or the parties deciding that they have reached a point in the process where they can make their own informal agreements between themselves.
