Financial Disclosure

In order to reach a financial settlement:

  • You must agree to complete full, frank & true financial disclosure and provide all supporting
  • This means sharing information about your assets, liabilities, income and expenditure.
  • The mediator will record all the details and provide you with a document called an "Open Financial Statement" alongside your agreement at the end of mediation.
  • This information is called "open" because it can be used outside mediation. However...
  • Discussion around how to divide you assets are considered "privileged", this means it can't be used outside mediation until it is turned into a legally binding document by your solicitor.

Mediation is about making positive agreements so that you can move on with your life.

"Our mediator did a tremendous job and acted impartially. You all do a great job"

"My husband and I were at total gridlock. We were able to use the experience of mediation to come to an agreement - wonderful"
