Father’s Day: An unrepeatable gift for divorcing Dads

Divorcing Dads can give themselves an unrepeatable gift this Father’s Day, says a national charity.

“Taking the chance to influence the shape of your separated family for the next few years is a lifelong gift money can’t buy,” says Jane Robey, Chief Executive of National Family Mediation.

“Most Dads think the only way to ‘do’ divorce or separation is a lawyer-led courtroom battle. Those who open their eyes momentarily to a different way of doing things will find a unique Father’s Day gift tailored for them.

“Using an expert third-party mediator you can negotiate with your ex and find durable solutions over the things that matter – arrangements for children, money and property.”

Family mediation is four times quicker than using the court route, typically taking 110 days compared with 435 days for court cases.

“If you go to court you’re likely to still be battling it out NEXT Father’s Day. You’ll face a year of heat, bluster, resentment and, ultimately, a settlement that could suit nobody. If you use mediation, things can be settled long before Winter sets in, with solutions geared to your family’s needs,” she added.
