Mental health awareness is becoming increasingly prevalent across social media and through work carried out by tireless charitable campaigners. Last week was national suicide prevention week. This increasing awareness is to be welcomed. It is no surprise that major life events such as divorce/separation and moving house are two of the most stressful events in a person’s life cycle.  If you are facing a separation or are in the throes of divorce it may be you are also faced with a potential house move or certainly issues as to your housing situation/needs.


It is vitally important when going through a difficult time in life that you have access to the proper support and assistance to help you through the dark tunnel and out the other side. Friends and colleagues may be telling you horror stories of what happened to them when they went through a life crisis, how expensive it was and how long it took through the Court system. It important to be aware that you have a number of options open to you. Divorce and separation do not have to involve expensive lengthy Court battles.


The process of family mediation is a far more cost effective and time efficient manner to assist you and your ex-partner to resolve issues concerning financial matters and/or issues as to where your children should live and spend time with you and your other party.  Where children are involved through the process of mediation you and your ex- partner can be assisted to work upon establishing a dialogue as parents even though the couple dialogue is likely to have broken down.


There is also the process of collaborative law which has similarities to mediation in approach and is more led lawyer led as a process.
