    Mediation can be a great way to resume contact and continue the important relationships built with your grandchildren.


    What is mediation?

    This process would involve an impartial third party to mediate between the two parties and help grandparents and guardians come to a beneficial solution for all. These mediators are skilled at assisting people to resolve issues. This process could help you decide how and when you may have access to your grandchildren. This method can make the situation less stressful. This is in many ways far better than court intervention which is more expensive and can make legally-biding decisions that have lasting impacts on your family. 


    What would mediation include?

    This would include all the parties meeting on neutral territory to communicate their issues, allowing parents, grandparents, and children to carry on with their lives. The mediator's role would be to gather all the information and facilitate a discussion. They would then help you develop options and solutions that both parties can agree with. Mediators are highly experienced and can outline each option's benefits and drawbacks, allowing you to agree to the best solution for you and your family.

    You have to attend a mediation meeting (Mediation Information and Assessment Meeting) before going to Court. This meeting helps understand the process and can save your time and expense. There are exceptions to attending this meeting in certain situations, such as domestic abuse.
