This year ‘Family Mediation Week’ falls between Monday 20th and Friday 24th January.

Even now, nearly forty years after it became ‘popular’, family mediation is not very well known.  When people separate or begin divorce proceedings, they immediately think to engage a solicitor or to book an appointment at the Family Court in order to resolve the outstanding issues that remain, most notably their child arrangements, property and finance.

Family Mediation Week was created to raise awareness of the benefits of mediation as either a direct alternative to costly solicitors or a long, drawn out court case.  It can also work alongside and compliment both of these routes.

So what areas of mediation has WYFMS chosen to highlight across multiple social media sites?

So, if you missed our social media posts covering the week, you now know what we were talking about.
