Avoiding Hefty Court Costs Through Mediation

Save Money, Save Time, Save Your Sanity

Divorce is a word loaded with emotions, uncertainty, and often, a considerable price tag. Many couples facing separation mistakenly believe that court or a battle through solicitors are the only options, a route fraught with financial strain, emotional turmoil, and a process that can drag on for months. Here at Green Light Mediation, we want to shine a light on a much brighter, more cost-effective path - mediation.

Court - A Financial and Emotional Black Hole

Battling it out in court is expensive. Lawyer fees can quickly spiral out of control, adding a heavy financial burden to an already stressful situation. This financial pressure can further strain the relationship, turning what could be a civil separation into a bitter war, and with court battles being notoriously lengthy, families are often left in limbo while emotions run high. For children involved, the impact of being caught in the middle of this legal tug-of-war can be strenuous. Children can be deeply scarred by the experience, if it is not handled well.

Mediation - A Brighter Path Forward

In a safe, confidential environment, our impartial mediator facilitates communication between you and your soon-to-be ex. This allows for open and honest discussion about finances, child contact (previously known as custody arrangements), and any other concerns that arise. Here are just a few of the key benefits of mediation over the courtroom:

Cost-effective: Compared to the ever-rising costs of court battles, mediation is a much more affordable option. Furthermore, the recent government grant offers a welcome £500 towards your mediation sessions, making it an even more attractive choice.

Time-saving: Mediation is a streamlined process that can be completed in a much shorter timeframe than a court case. This allows you and your family to move forward with your lives at a faster pace.

Reduced stress: The adversarial nature of court can be incredibly stressful. Mediation, on the other hand, promotes open communication and collaboration, minimising the emotional strain.

Focus on solutions: Mediation prioritises finding solutions that work for both parties, creating a sense of fairness and cooperation – especially important if you have children to co-parent.

Addressing Financial Concerns

Money is often a primary driver of conflict during divorce, and the additional stress of mounting court costs can exacerbate this tension. Our online mediation services help alleviate this pressure by focusing on solutions and avoiding the burden of exorbitant legal fees. The government's £500 mediation voucher scheme further eases the financial strain, allowing you to focus on rebuilding your lives. Our prices are income related to help make it more accessible for both of you, even if you do have different incomes. Green Light Mediation can also provide legal aid assessments, as we offer legal aid for mediation here too.
