Saving money through mediation. Sounds good doesn’t it? But just how does one go about saving money through mediation? Well, actually its fairly simple. To start, contact your local Family Mediation Council Accredited (FMCA) mediator (such as you find at New Landscape Mediation), and the you’ll start saving money through mediation right from the very first call.
In mediation, you’ll first begin by both you and your former partner attending an individual meeting with your mediator. This first meeting is to ensure that you are comfortable with them, that they understand your needs, and that the mediation service you’ve chosen is, indeed able to provide the precise range of services you and your family need. This small bit of time and effort at the beginning of your process will help to ensure that you are saving money through mediation, and not just heading off on a wild goose chase.
Saving money through mediation happens when your FMCA mediator knows what your family needs, and then develops the most effective manner of approaching your situation as possible. Rather than engaging solicitors or other representatives to “fight your corner” and send seemingly endless streams of expensive correspondence back and forth, your FMCA mediator will almost always speak with you and your former partner directly, either in person or over the phone. In this way saving money through mediation becomes an automatic by product of the process because the time required to engage in conversations between you are cut to a mere fraction of the more traditional legal method.
In addition to this savings in time, direct communication between you, your former partner and the mediator reduces the number of misunderstandings that so often occur when reading a letter. This more personal approach humanises the entire experience for the entire family. Saving money through mediation isn’t difficult. It is simply a matter of the method being more applicable to this modern world, where the drain on people’s time, emotions and mental capacity are a constant factor to contend with.
