Share Article: Is mediation right for me? Family Mediation and Domestic Abuse

Although domestic abuse may be a barrier to mediation, this is not always the case. During the initial meeting your mediator will discuss in detail with you whether mediation can be facilitated in a safe way for you and your ex-partner. If it is not appropriate for you and your ex-partner to be in the same room together then it may still be possible to mediate using shuttle mediation or hybrid mediation.

In Shuttle Mediation you and your ex-partner will be in separate rooms either virtually or in person, and the mediator will shuttle between the two of you.

Hybrid Mediation is one of the options that is particularly suited to high conflict or complex cases, as it facilitates the inclusion of lawyers directly into the process and allows parties to sit in separate rooms with their lawyers.

It is also possible to mediate using Zoom or Teams.
