Family mediation does not totally remove the need for solicitors.
The process can work well in various circumstances. And this includes where each person wants to use a solicitor to give relevant advice between mediation sessions.
When agreement is reached in family mediation a solicitor can look at what you’ve agreed. Then they can put this into a binding legal document called a Consent Order.
The Consent Order will then need to be ratified by a family court.
If you do not use a solicitor the Court will help finalise your agreements in a Consent Order.
