Watford - Focus Mediation
Why choose Focus Mediation in Watford?
If you are looking for help with separation or divorce, and you live in or around Watford, you have come to the right place.
Focus offers both Family Mediation and One Day Family Mediation in Watford with a variety of different mediation options tailored to fit busy lives.
What is mediation? It is a way for separating couples to talk through and resolve issues around property and finance and arrangements for children.
Many separating couples fall back on solicitors, or do nothing if they can’t agree the split of assets or arrangements for their children. That’s because most people don’t know what family mediation can offer.
You cannot come to any old arrangement in family law “you take the house and I’ll have the children” it has to be one that is fair based on needs.
Mediation allows couples to work step by step through their issues – working out their needs, and importantly their children’s needs, and taking a look together at their future lives apart.
Focus mediators are all former lawyers so they are geared to help you reach a set of proposals that a Court will agree. It means that if you are both committed to reaching a resolution, you can be assured Focus mediators will help you reach your goal. You may need your solicitor’s advice on your proposals, and they will draft your Consent Order but you will have arrived at the answers yourselves.
Focus mediators work full time on family mediation: they are family mediation specialists it is what they do.
In Watford Focus offers an additional One Day Mediation service. Particularly suited to couples who are not married and for families separating out interests in businesses.
Mediation is the new way to approach divorce and separation. It offers a quicker, cheaper and much less stressful way of dealing with separation and divorce and is particularly useful for parents because whatever the situation parents will always need to be able to talk about their children.
