CAUGHT UP IN THE STORM
CAUGHT UP IN THE STORM

21 January 2019

oday is day one of Family Mediation Week.

Town Gate Mediation, which is a part of Phillips Solicitors, is supporting Family Mediation Week, which runs until Friday January 25.

Organised by the Family Mediators Association (FMA), the purpose of the week is to encourage separating couples to sit down together and work out solutions to the financial and family-based issues that can be part of separation or divorce.

The goal is for both partners to come to an amicable agreement which suits everyone involved, avoiding the costs – literally and figuratively – of bitter battles in court.

Mediation can help to secure a far better outcome for couples and children – it tends to be quicker, less costly and less combative than resolving issues through court or solicitors.

This year Family Mediation Week is based around the theme: “The storm before the calm.”

The chair of the FMA, Philippa Johnson has written an interesting blog called Caught up in the storm, which offers some good advice.
