Bristol (PRWEB UK) 19 November 2013
Barcan Woodward Family Mediation is marking National Family Dispute Resolution Week by offering free 30 minute information meetings at their offices in Bedminster and Horfield.
National Family Dispute Resolution Week runs from Monday November 25th to Friday November 29th, 2013. It aims to raise awareness of the various dispute resolution options available, including family mediation and collaborative law, amongst separating or divorcing couples and parents.
Family mediation helps separating parents and former partners to reach settlements on matters concerning arrangements for children and financial matters during divorce and separation. It can also help grandparents who have been denied contact with their grandchildren due to a family dispute.
If both parties are willing to consent to a mediated approach, family mediation offers a constructive alternative to contested court proceedings that can save significant time, money and stress. It is also available for free to individuals who are financially eligible for legal aid-funded mediation.
Tom Powles, head of Barcan Woodward Family Mediation, said “Mediation provides an alternative way of resolving disputes that arise following separation. Not only is it quicker and more cost-effective, it is also a more harmonious way of dealing with family disputes.
"We remain committed to family mediation as a means of avoiding potentially traumatic and divisive court battles and I would urge anyone who is interested in finding out more about the benefits of mediation to attend a free 30 minute meeting during Family Dispute Resolution Week.”
