If you do not know anything about these important points then how you are going to do it well. In this article, i have mentioned important pointers that will definitely help in preparing yourself for mediation. 

  • The mediator will present the papers of agreement on the very first session of the mediation. Never try to ignore these papers. In fact, you are supposed to know each and everything written on the agreement and then you can know what exactly you are expected to do. 
  • Mediator is for you and the other party only. Always remember; never hesitate to ask questions from the mediator. In fact, ask as many as questions you want to ask from the mediator. Never limit the things to your own mind only because it will have negative impact on the mediation process. 
  • Before entering into mediation, it is important to know what exactly you want from the mediation. If you do not know what exactly you want to accomplish from the mediation, you can never have an effective mediation. You can also pen down the things you want to resolve from the mediation. 
  • It is never mandatory to lock yourself in the family mediation Cumbria. Always have a reserve point in your mind. If that point is crossed during the mediation, you can unblock yourself and walk away from it.  
  • Of course, mediation is all about resolving the conflicts. During the family mediation, never forget to discuss the detailed history of the attempts you have made to resolve the disputes before the mediation. 
  • Always bear in your mind that what will happen if not anyone party does comes up with the decision or agreement. Whether the case will go to the judge or you will find another way to resolve the disputes then.
