On 17th June 2016, BBC2 aired the first part of its new documentary series ‘Mr V Mrs: Call The Mediator’, a show which promises its viewers access into the private world of family mediation, where separated couples make attempts to resolve financial and family disputes face to face in order to avoid the stress and expense of going to Court.
Filmed over the course of a year, the series goes behind the closed doors of family mediation and allows the curious amongst us to see the procedure of mediation, how it works, and whether couples using the service find it productive and useful in the long run.
Here at Life Law NI, we have been lucky enough to have a number of trained mediators provide us with guest blogs on the subject. For those who would like to learn more about mediation, feel free to click on the links below to be directed to our blog articles:-
