Mediation can provide a solution when people are in conflict with each other and want to form a solution together, without the need for a judge to decide. We strive for a sustainable solution. Not only will this avoid a legal — and sometimes costly — battle, it also offers a customised solution. Those involved decide which topics should be discussed, with the mediator playing a neutral role, but helping the parties to come to a solution.
Mediation takes place on a confidential basis and participation can only be on a voluntary basis. During the first meeting clear agreements will be made to underscore this, which will be determined in a mediation agreement.
Where the parties still need an expert who solely serves the interests of one party, it is possible to sit down with all parties involved assisted by a private attorney and mediated by a neutral mediator. The intention however will be that parties come to a solution.
Our specialised mediators work from our office in Amsterdam and can assist our clients through mediation in a range of family law topics. For instance, our mediators help in divorce, but also in the settlement of an estate.
