Parental Mediation – Separation/Access Plan
The Mediation Service was contacted by Party 1 who wanted to finalise a comprehensive parenting plan through mediation. Contact was made with Party 2 and both parties agreed to participate in mediation.
The mediators first met with both parties separately to understand fully both parties’ positions and to establish what they each expected from the mediation process. Both parties wanted to agree a separation plan and also outline an access plan for their child.
The case involved 6 sessions, each lasting approximately 2.5 hours. The mediators ensured that both parties had an equal opportunity to speak and that the agreement reached was both realistic and workable. Both parties were happy with and signed the final agreement.
