What is Divorce Mediation?

Parent mediation is a process in which divorcing or separating parents work with a neutral, third-party mediator to resolve disputes related to their children. The goal of mediation is to help parents come to an agreement that is in the best interest of their children, while avoiding expensive and lengthy court proceedings. Rhino Mediation in Blackpool offers a range of customized mediation services that are specifically tailored to each family’s unique needs.


The Process of Mediation

The mediation process typically consists of a series of meetings between the parents and the mediator. The mediator provides a neutral and supportive environment to encourage both parents to express their individual concerns and explore various options to address any differences. The mediator is trained to help guide the conversation to constructive and positive outcomes.

Initial Meeting

The mediation process starts with an initial meeting. During this meeting, the mediator will explain the mediation process and go over the expectations and objectives of the mediation. It’s also an opportunity for both parents to discuss any concerns they may have, as well as gain information regarding the mediation process and their particular circumstances.

Agendas Setting

The mediator will work with the parents to create a tailored mediation agenda that includes all the issues which will be discussed in the coming mediation sessions. The mediator will ensure that each issue’s discussion will have a proper time slot which is necessary to come to a successful resolution.


In the subsequent mediation sessions, the mediator will work with the parents to encourage open communication, clarification of specific interests, needs and expectations between them. The mediator will assist parties when exploring and evaluating different options.

Agreements and Implementation

After the mediation sessions, the mediator drafts a written document that reflects the agreed-upon points. The agreement is then signed by both parties. As a note, all of the agreed-upon points are completely understood by both parties prior to signing.
