Welcome to New Landscape Family Mediation
Family Mediators Carolyn Hanes and Johnathan Pease have been helping divorcing/separating couples build new lives for over 20 years. Using family mediation, we will help you create stable, secure futures for yourselves and children as quickly as possible. We also recognise that this needs to be done without squandering your savings on lengthy and traumatic Court processes. In short, we understand that the cost of ending a relationship is already high enough.
At New Landscape Family Mediation in Essex, we will work closely with you to design a personalised solution based on the needs of you and your family that can be made into a legally binding agreement that is ratified by the Court. Whether you need to find the fairest and most sensible way to share your finances, work to create a positive and healthy co-parenting relationship following your separation or both, we can help at minimal cost.
