A Mediation service is a process that can be used instead of using the court system to resolve a dispute. It involves an independent third party who acts as a facilitator (assistant) between the parties to assist them to explore ways to resolve their differences and reach an agreement that best addresses their needs.
Many of our clients tell us that their Judge suspended their court case so that individuals in dispute can attend mediation services.
The Mediation Services Mary Claire McCarthy  offers  are:

Family mediation services
Many issues may need to be discussed in a sensitive manner and at a pace that suits all parties. Issues such as access and custody of children, family home, and other assets such as perhaps second home abroad, access to pension rights and rights that may arise under a will. However, with family mediation services both parties with the mediator decide on an outcome.Another concern may be the payment of maintenance for partner and any children. Often a Parenting Plan can be drawn up for separating parents in order for them to take into account how the family will operate on a daily basis in the future such as managing responsibilities like school arrangements, holidays, and child care.
These are issues that a solicitor may not be able to guarantee for you as the opposing party will also have a solicitor. However, with mediation both parties with the mediator help decide a favourable outcome with everyone’s best interests.

Once settlement is achieved between the parties and the mediator the mediation agreement is drawn up. This is a non legally binding document. Spouses who wish to then formalise the matter and sign a formal Deed of Separation are assigned a solicitor from our list of panel members or choose their own.The solicitors prepare the paperwork and upon both parties signing the Legal Separation is complete. In Divorce cases upon filing and acceptance by the court the divorce process is then complete. More information on family mediation here

Workplace and Employment Mediation services
The workplace can be a very stressful environment for many parties. Harrassment/bullying among other issues can be a problem and can affect performance standards. These issues may affect an employee’s emotional wellbeing and thus their work performance. This can often lead to conflict.

It can be difficult to achieve resolution without compromising neutrality. A neutral facilitator who remains objective can often be the catalyst in achieving mutually acceptable resolutions. Find out more about employment mediation here.
