Family Mediation

Family Dispute:
Family disputes may range from difficulties about an issue in a family, such as negotiations between the HSE and the family for child protection, the need to negotiate because of reentry to a family after a crime is committed or addiction treatment, to conflicts arising from a family business issue, a will or property. Mediation can help to create answers that meet everyone's needs and enhance relationships.

The process:
Any member of the family or a friend or professional contacts CRMC. The mediator explains to the person how mediation works and discusses any concerns. When all those involved in the dispute make contact with the mediator, the mediator may agree to meet with everyone or have individual meetings first before bringing everyone together to discuss the issues and concerns. The mediator is expert in processes that enable people discuss and come to agreement about difficult issues. The final plan is drawn up into an Agreement by the mediator
